When the University of Hartford was incorporated just over 50 years ago by business and community leaders, they envisioned a center of education and culture for Greater Hartford. At its core, it would be a university for the community created by the community.
The University has come a long way since its humble beginnings on Hartford’s last remaining farm, evolving from a local school for commuters into a comprehensive university that attracts students from throughout the world. Yet it remains true to its original mission of serving as a valued resource for individuals, families, businesses, and communities throughout the Hartford region, offering hundreds of programs that serve the University and its neighbors every day. For over 45 years listener supported WWUH has served an important role in the University's community service mission.
WWUH Jazz News
Saxophone and flute master Thomas Chapin died at the age of 40 in 1998. Though his death was untimely, Chapin left his mark on jazz in the '80's and '90's, pushing the music and bending genres.
Hartford, Connecticut is where it all started for Thomas Chapin - growing up in nearby Manchester, playing in clubs as a teenager and throughout his career, studying at Phillips Academy Andover where he discovered the sax, and attending the Hartt School of Music.
After the film, hear a concert of music composed by the man himself, performed by musicians with whom Chapin spent his career playing and performing. The concert begins at 6:15 PM on Saturday March 6.
Please note that admission to the concert is separate from tickets to the film.
