Jazz series begins May 25
WILMINGTON — The Southern Vermont Deerfield Valley Jazz Concert Series announces their 2019 season, beginning Memorial Day Weekend. The series features music performed monthly from May through October in Historic Memorial Hall at 14 West Main St.
The Saturday concerts are fundraisers for area charitable foundations and lead by pianist Chris Bakriges. Joining Bakriges are bassist Avery Sharpe and drummer Billy Arnold. Admission is by tax-deductible donation at the door. All concerts begin at 8 p.m.
