Green Wood Coffee House Series is not a First United Methodist Church of Ann Arbor program, but is an independent/private venture.  Communications from GWCH do not necessarily reflect the views of FUMC of Ann Arbor or its leadership.

We want to keep our artists, volunteers, and audience safe! Masking is currently optional at all events. We may update masking protocol when appropriate.

    In 2008 Ari wrote, recorded and released a new song every Monday in his 52 project, and in 2009 released Twelve Mondays, a collection of re-mixed fan favorites from 52. Ari has released four other albums: Sunset Over Hope Street, The Fire Plays, Shouts And Whispers, and the Grammy nominated Silver Skies Blue, a duets album with Judy Collins.

    Many of Ari's songs have appeared in TV shows and films, including The Path, The Lincoln Lawyer, Private Practice, Army Wives, and One Tree Hill.
