Kevin McManus and The Bone Forum will open the Winter Jazz Concert Series on Nov. 13 at The Westmoreland Museum of American Art.

The Pittsburgh-based jazz trombone ensemble will play from 7-9 p.m. that evening at the Greensburg museum, 221 N. Main St.

“On the second Wednesday of the every month, November through February, our community room becomes a jazz club lounge with a cash bar,” the museum says in a release.

McManus is an adjunct instructor of trombone and jazz studies at Seton Hill University and is also on the faculties of Frostburg State University, Westminster College and Westmoreland County Community College. He has performed with such artists as Tony Bennett, Josh Groban, Wayne Newton, Frankie Valli and The Four Seasons, Aretha Franklin, Pattie LaBelle, The Temptations and The Four Tops.

Concert-goers are invited to arrive early to explore the galleries and get a bite to eat from Café Marchand, both of which will be open until 7 p.m.

Currently featured in The Westmoreland’s main gallery is the Associated Artists of Pittsburgh’s 107th annual exhibition.

The cafe, a partnership with chefs Christophe Fichet and Nicolas Grunewald of The French Express in Latrobe, offers a rotating seasonal menu of soups, quiches, pastries and snacks with locally sourced farm-to-table ingredients.

A ticket to the concert is $10, or $8 for museum members.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
