Please join the Springfield Art Museum and Play It Forward SWMO for the first in a series of First Friday concerts featuring the incomparable Jerry Hoover and the Firehouse Band. A $5 donation to Play It Forward SWMO covers admission to the concert. Admission to the Springfield Art Museum is free.

All donations benefit Play It Forward SWMO, whose mission is to provide quality musical instruments to music programs and individuals in our community that are most in need. In addition, funds raised are used to repair and refurbish donated instruments. This concert series was designed not only to increase awareness for Play It Forward SWMO’s programs, but to highlight the diverse talents of musicians throughout the area. A new musical guest, scheduled by Play It Forward SWMO’s Director Ruell Chappell, will be featured at each concert.

With generous support from Reliable Superstore, Car-Fi, and Panera Bread, guests of “Music, Art & Bagels” will enjoy complimentary snacks, free Museum parking, a roaring evening of jazz and Dixieland favorites, and can then take advantage of the free First Friday Art Walk Shuttle that will ferry them to Art Walk locations around downtown.
