May Friday Jazz Night

CL Critic Matthew Warhol Recommends: Hands down, jazz nights are the best way to experience the High Museum. I love museums. But, my biggest complaint about them is that visiting a museum is too similar to going to the library. On jazz night, however, The High is alive. People are drinking and laughing and clapping. Everyone gets dressed up. The main corridor is buzzing from the energy produced by world-class musicians giving their all. And you’re free to walk through the exhibits as usual, but even that feels electrified. Somehow, Atlanta’s biggest arts institution gets even more creative. — MW
From the venue:Experience evening access to the Museum as the sounds of live jazz surround you. Enjoy a drink and head to the galleries as you explore the High’s permanent collection and special exhibitions. Curated by Sander Pinheiro, the event will feature two musical areas where musicians will play throughout the evening, layering notes and improvising melodies.
