Monthly jazz concerts start up
WILMINGTON- The Southern Vermont Deerfield Valley Jazz Concert Series 2019 season will begin Memorial Day weekend. Join in for beautiful music performed monthly, May to October, in the lovely turn-of-the-century Historic Memorial Hall, 14 West Main Street.
The Saturday concerts are fundraisers for area charitable foundations and led by pianist Chris Bakriges. Joining Bakriges on Saturday, May 25, will be bassist Avery Sharpe and drummer Billy Arnold. Admission is by tax-deductible donation at the door. All concerts begin at 8 pm.
The beneficiary of the first concert on May 25 is the Vermont Veterans and Family Outreach Program, created in 2007 to help veterans and their families obtain the benefits they’ve earned through their service.
