Jazz in the Attic - duo with Rick Hirsch

The Attic in the State Theatre
State College, PA

Matthew Fries - electric piano
Rick Hirsch - alto/tenor saxophone

Rick HirschI'll be heading out to my home state for this concert in the State Theatre's attic, a wonderfully cozy listening room set up like a real jazz club: Round-top tables, bar service, all-ages, and at a modest ticket price of $10/$7 students.

I'll be playing duo with saxophonist, Rick Hirsch. These events have been selling out, so advance tickets are recommended. Join us if you can. It will be a fun night of jazz standards and improvisation.
