The following was submitted by the Salem Jazz and Soul Festival:
The Salem Jazz and Soul Festival and the City of Salem will hold their third annual City of Salem Jazz Appreciation Day Concert, on Saturday, April 14 at the Salem Five Community Room, 210 Essex St., Salem, from 2 – 4 p.m. The concert is free and open to all music lovers and is generously sponsored by Salem Five. Performing at this year’s concert are students from Salem State University and Salem High School, who are preparing for the concert through a first-of-its kind series of workshops sponsored by the Salem Jazz and Soul Festival. The group will perform jazz standards. Salem Five is the exclusive corporate sponsor for the workshops and concert.
There will also be a special art contest with works submitted by Salem grade-school students centered on the theme, “What Music Means to Me.” The public is invited to vote for their favorite pieces and the winners will be announced at the Salem Jazz and Soul Festival in August. The Salem Jazz and Soul Festival will soon announce another season of jazz concerts through the summer months that will culminate with the Sixth Annual Salem Jazz and Soul Festival at the Salem Willows on Saturday and Sunday, Aug. 18 & 19.
