Annual Benefit – Carnegie SWINGS!

Carnegie Swings Benefit

Carnegie SWINGS!

Saturday, September 28, 2019
7:30 PM


Music director/arranger/trombonist Reggie Watkins has prepared a dazzling performance blending vintage music and dance from across the spectrum of Jazz and popular song for the Andrew Carnegie Free Library & Music Hall’s annual benefit this year.

The program will include Pittsburgh’s renowned Boilermaker Jazz Band bringing new verve to classic Jazz Age (20s – 40s) music and two New Yorkers: tap dancer extraordinaire Alex MacDonald and fabulous vocal stylist Lisa Gary.

Flaunt your favorite brand of Retro with that special dress, tie, shoes or hat — you pick the decade.  Anything goes!

Carnegie SWINGS! benefits the campaign to restore and revitalize the historic landmark Andrew Carnegie Free Library & Music Hall. 

A lively after-theater supper throughout the ACFL&MH’s historic facility follows the performance.  You’ll find a dance party (as well as food and drink) in the Studio.  Join in or just enjoy. Anything goes!

Limited on site and street parking is available.  For your convenience, a free shuttle runs from the Main Street parking lot  directly across from the Carnegie Coffee Company.

Doors open at 7:00 pm || Concert begins at 7:30 pm

Tickets are available online or by calling 412-276-3456 x8

$125.00 Reserved Orchestra Seating ($80 tax deductible)

All support of Carnegie SWINGS! (sponsorship, tickets, donations) will be matched by September’s Love Your Library campaign.
