|Lenox Jazz Stroll Begins Sept. 15|
|01:38PM / Tuesday, September 13, 2022|
LENOX-- The third Lenox Jazz Stroll will kick off at the Lenox Library this week, running from Sept. 15 to 17.
The event is a collaboration with the Milltown Foundation, Berkshire Jazz Collective and the Lenox Chamber of Commerce. The festival will begin Thursday with a screening of a documentary film by George Schuller, The Modern Jazz Quartet: From Residency to Legacy.
Friday Night launches the musical performances at The Gateways Inn at 6:00 p.m. with a performance by the Ted Rosenthal Trio. The actual stroll is on Saturday, Sept. 17, with performances throughout the day in various locations in downtown Lenox.
The Lenox Jazz Stroll started in 2020, organized by Andy Wrba, Founder, Berkshire Jazz Collective and Program Manager, Milltown Foundation, also a local musician and music teacher.
“The Lenox Jazz Stroll continues to evolve from its inception in 2020. In that first year, we were restricted to gathering in small groups in outdoor settings so the idea of having several jazz performances in walkable locations was a welcomed idea by both musicians and listeners alike. Now in its third year, the Jazz Stroll has quickly become a staple of the regional music scene with performances from top musicians from the Berkshires, Boston, and New York.” -Andy Wrba
The Lenox Cultural District is a supporter and sponsor of the event.
