The first Thursday Night Live featured opera. The second one, on Nov. 1, was all about jazz. Taylor Ho Bynum led the students of the Barbary Coast Jazz Ensemble in a rousing set of new, improvisatory music. The guest artists for the evening were Bynum’s Boston-based music friends The Fully Celebrated Orchestra – actually, a trio, which became a quartet when Bynum sat in. The gathering included drinks from the pop-up bar, mellow lighting, an all-ages crowd, and a DJ set following the live performance. Thursday Night Live’s next installment is November 8, when it moves to the Hop’s Alumni Hall and features D-Step, Dartmouth’s own high-energy step dance team.
