New Feature: Cultural events at Xavier

Starting with the Masters of Swing Series

No one in Norwood needs to be told we live next door to a top notch university that’s very much on the move, even moving in our direction with plans for building expansion and development on the south end of town. And everyone’s known forever that Xavier’s concerts, lectures, and plays are open to the public, but we’ve never seen much in the way advertising for the events, especially right around the corner here in Norwood. So, we’ve decided a new feature is in order. We’re going to regularly publish the details of upcoming concerts, plays and lectures at Xavier, starting with the Masters of Swing Series. Parking is free for all events. Over the next several days, we’ll post information about other September concerts as well as the Xavier Players' performances of their season opener “Frozen.”
