jazz and wine

John Smith/ WAER News

City of Syracuse residents will get together for an annual Summer Tradition tonight… 'Jazz in the City' returns!  The location is a bit different from previous years when concerts were held in City Neighborhoods.  Speaking to us recently at the New York State Fair, Producer Steve Becker says he’s noticed something that’s happening all-around tonight’s concert venue in Perseverance Park.

On April 25th at 6:30 p.m., WAER will present the annual Jazz and Wine fundraiser in partnership with the Community Folk Art Center. This year's event will feature the talented bassist and vocalist, Mimi Jones. Jones played in Syracuse last year as part of Tia Fuller's ensemble at WAER's Jazz Appreciation Month concert last year. This time around, Jones is showcasing her unique individual talents as a performer and composer.
