A Place for Jazz and SUNY Schenectady Present Ann Hampton Callaway
SCHENECTADY – A Place for Jazz (APFJ) and SUNY Schenectady School of Music are presenting a special spring concert featuring the legendary vocalist Ann Hampton Callaway with pianist Ted Rosenthal on Friday, June 3rd, at 7:30 PM at the Carl B. Taylor Auditorium, SUNY Schenectady Community College. This is a rescheduled event, originally meant to take place April 29th.
“We are very pleased to resume the jazz concerts this year. APFJ’s last two seasons were canceled due to Covid concerns. Prior to that, APFJ had presented a jazz concert series every fall for 33 consecutive years – a remarkable feat for a small, totally volunteer-led and operated not-for-profit organization. We will be announcing our 2022 fall concert season soon.” ~ Albert Brooks, APFJ president
