Jazz it up

WAG readers may remember Emily Tabin from a profile I wrote for our November issue.

That month’s theme was “Passionate Pursuits,” and Tabin certainly fit the theme as founder, executive director and vocal supporter of the Westchester Jazz Orchestra.

Well, she’s been sure to keep WAG in the loop about the musical organization – and I’m happy to pass along the latest.

The group is going to be offering a free concert, at 7:30 p.m. July 24 at Memorial Park in Nyack. As part of Nyack’s Jazz Week, the WJO will offer this evening of al fresco music. (Memorial Park is at the foot of Depew Avenue, at the Hudson River).

The show, presented by Friends of the Nyacks, will be moved to the Nyack Center, on the corner of Broadway and Depew, in case of rain. Visit friendsofthenyacks.org for more details.

In addition, the WJO has announced its 2012-2013 schedule will get under way Sept. 29 with “West Side Stories” at The Masters School in Dobbs Ferry. The evening will also mark the start of the group’s 10th concert season, which takes it through performances in Irvington and Tarrytown well into 2013.
