This year’s Brazos Forum will have the theme “Seaport Cities — Then and Now,” beginning at 9 a.m. Wednesday at the SBC Theater in the Mayborn Museum, 1300 S. University Parks Drive.

The forum has changed to a one-day event, with presentations about American colonial port cities; Salem, Massachusetts; and Mardi Gras in Mobile, Alabama.

At noon, soprano Bronwen Forbay will perform songs associated with U.S. seaport cities. A luncheon follows on the mezzanine of the Mayborn.

A discount of $75 is available to anyone who has never previously attended Brazos Forum. Tickets for Brazos Forum members cost $90 and $130 for non-members. Reservations are due Friday.
