Connect with friends and make new ones with the galleries as your backdrop at the NBMAA's First Friday, New Britain’s Best Happy Hour. Celebrate America’s independence with the vibrant sounds of big-band jazz by Al Fenton Big Band! Under the direction of Kathy Neri, this group of 19 accomplished musicians will perform music from the “Golden Era of Swing” alongside big band renditions of contemporary hits. The Al Fenton Big Band has performed extensively throughout Connecticut, reaching audiences with their swingin’ sound and expansive repertoire.

At 6 p.m., art lovers are welcome to explore our collection in a tour guided by one of the Museum's knowledgeable docents.
