In 1926 the Clara Thompson Hall was built in Springfield Missouri.  The Hall which is listed in the National Register of Historic Places is now home to the newly renovated James and Patricia Spangler Concert Hall.

Thursday’s free concert will be open to the public and will feature the Drury Jazz Ensemble and 2006 Drury graduate Eric Spyres.

After a quick ribbon-cutting ceremony the first concert of the newly renovated Hall will begin at 7:30 pm.
