Much like composers uniquely arrange all of the notes, Onondaga Community College Visual Arts Department Professors also made a masterpiece of their own in a wonderfully organized and colorful art gallery of Syracuse Jazz Fest history. The newest exhibit that officially opened to the public this week is called “Jazz Fest Memories and Memorabilia.”
Founder and Executive Producer Frank Malfitano lives and breathes the music industry. He championed enough support over the years to keep the festival going strong for 35 years. Malfitano points out that he feels indebted to the work of multi-talented individuals who also shape the festival.
