Jazz In Town: Bird Lives!

(Photo: This month we celebrate the 100th birthday of Charlie “Bird” Parker. A rare color photo of Parker.)

It is most unfortunate that we have had to suspend the Hotel Henry Summer Jazz Series.  While we support the overarching goal to keep the coronavirus infection rate low and to protect the lives of many, it is nevertheless disappointing for us all.  The support for the series and the cooperation to comply with guidelines were immensely appreciated.   We are especially grateful for partnering with Hotel Henry.  Allowing the community to engage in an enriching cultural experience during a challenging time.

Many thanks to all those who contributed to the “Keep Local Live Jazz Alive” Fund.  In light of additional New York State guidelines and restrictions, the fund becomes even more important to enable us to provide opportunities to jazz musicians hurt by such restrictions.

Please note that the Carina & The Six String Preacher event scheduled for August 27 at Jazz at Chandlerville has been postponed due to weather and safety.  The event is rescheduled for September 24.
