Jazz on the Menu, Feb. 20
Dig the sounds of live local jazz, while savoring a meal of local cuisine – all for a good cause! It’s the ninth year for Jazz on the Menu. This time nine local restaurants will participate by donating 25% of their food and beverage sales to help support our highly successful Music Education Programs in the schools.
A complete list of restaurants is now online; musicians will be announced soon. But it’s not too early to make your reservations – many of these restaurants are packed for our Jazz on the Menu nights.
Don’t forget the After-Party! Once again we’ll have live music, desserts, a wine bar and lots of fun at Costeaux French Bakery and Cafe, 417 Healdsburg Ave., from 7:30 to 10 p.m. that same day, Feb. 20. This year we’ll feature music from SambaNoma as well as the Healdsburg High School Jazz Band. It’s always a lot of fun, you won’t want to miss it whether you dine out for Jazz on the Menu or not. Tickets are only $15, available soon on this website.
Here Comes the Freedom Jazz Choir
Rehearsals are now underway; get ready for the March 1 Concert at the Raven Performing Arts Theater. Once again Marcus Shelby and Tiffany Austin will guide us in performance of this year’s theme, “Bessie Smith, Louis Armstrong, Duke Ellington and the Blues.”
