WILMINGTON- The Great American Songbook Concert Series continues at Memorial Hall on Saturday, August 23, beginning at 8 pm. The monthly series began last month to call attention to and aid charitable organizations in and around the Deerfield Valley. This month the proceeds from the concert will benefit the West River Habitat for Humanity.

Music is in the blood of vocalist and jazz flutist Sarah Clay. Her father as a young man in Pittsburg played with Erroll Garner, Dodo Marmarosa, and Andre Previn. She served as president of the Pioneer Valley Cappella and leads Clay Jazz and Feats of Clay, performing jazz standards throughout New England. Clay is also on the faculty at Holyoke Community College.

Bassist Anthony Santor and drummer Gabe Jarrett are Burlington mainstays. Santor currently performs with trumpeter Arthur Brooks and Ensemble V while Jarrett works with Trey Anastasio, Grace Potter, and the Jazz Mandolin Project.

Memorial Hall is located at 14 West Main Street. All concerts start at 8 pm and tickets are freewill donations.
