Take a musical journey from the early 20th-century roots of jazz to the diverse sounds of today at the Fort Worth Library’s 3rd Thursday Jazz Series, featuring a dynamic lineup of local and internationally touring artists.
This series is a partnership with The Center for Texas Studies at TCU and is designed to make the public aware of the important, yet often overlooked historical resources around them, and how to preserve them for posterity. The goal of the workshops is to prove that "every person is a historian," and that they can, by their deeds and actions, preserve a small part of the cultural and historical fabric of the region.
Programs for this series take place on the first Saturday of the months January - May and September - December at 10:30 a.m. in the Tandy Lecture Hall at the Central Library.
