If you are looking for an unusual way to spend Saturday night, July 20, look no further than the very special fundraising concert hosted by the Torrington Historical Society from 6:30 pm-8:30 pm. The highlight of this event is the rare opportunity to hear top jazz musicians perform in the Hotchkiss gardens.
The Torrington Historical Society is located on 192 Main Street in a grand colonial home once belonging to the Hotchkiss family. The gardens are in full bloom and have a lovely reflecting pool that is the centerpiece of the garden. The concert will feature jazz standards and original compositions by various members of the sextet, all noted jazz musicians. Musicians are Peter McEachern, trombone/ compositions; Dave Santoro, bass/compositions; Dave Ballou, trumpet/ arrangements; Mike DiRubbo, alto saxophone; Zaccai Curtis, keyboards, and Ian Carroll on drums.
Don’t miss this opportunity to enjoy an evening of rhythmic, forward-leaning and exciting jazz! The musicians have shared the stage with many of the important figures of the jazz idiom in their long careers. All of the musicians are faculty members at the Litchfield Jazz Camp.
Concert attendees are encouraged to bring a comfortable lawn chair and a picnic basket. Tickets are $15 per person, to purchase online click here.
In case of inclement weather, the concert will be held in the Torrington Historical Society Carriage House Gallery.
