NEW CANAAN — Creativity in many forms was found at the Carriage Barn Arts Center Saturday night when the nonprofit hosted a jazz band.

The house was full for a first-of-a-kind event that featured New Canaan musician Michael-Louis Smith and his quartet.

“The Carriage Barn is really dedicated to promoting local artists and bringing artists to the local community,” said Hilary Wittmann, executive director.

“This is our first jazz night,” she said, “and we’re hoping this fall to do more of this.”
