Sublime Jazz; Substandard Crowd
To the Editor:
Last Saturday night, my husband and I had a marvelous time at war3house3 in Swarthmore listening to the eight-piece Blackbird Society Orchestra play jazz from the flapper era. Fun and uplifting, but dampened by the audience being scarcely larger than the band! Where is everybody? If this were the Arden Gild Hall, it would have been packed, at a mere $15 a ticket in advance. If our community doesn’t turn out for fabulous events like this, these events will disappear.
