St. Kieran will host local jazz favorite, Berlin Jazz in its 17th annual benefit concert. In addition, the Material Girls of the Berlin Quilters Guild are currently exhibiting their works in the main hall. Come and check out the show and the exhibit, meet a few friends, have a cold beverage from our adult beverage bar, a hot beverage and/or a snack baked by our awesome team of volunteer bakers!
The jazz band, in existence since 1987, has amassed a library of over 200 selections. Among the selections for Saturday’s concert are All of Me, Stardust, My Funny Valentine, Sing, Sing, Sing and Quiet Nights of Quiet Stars.
“We have such a great book of music, we could play for more than 10 hours non-stop” claims the group’s president, Monique Lavertu. “It’s becoming increasingly difficult to select the play list for a 2-hour show: a great problem to have!”
Berlin Jazz has been blessed over the years to have many talented North Country musicians join the ensemble. The 18+ musicians that now fill their ranks donate their time each week for rehearsal and play for the love of music.
