Ferrario Southern Tier Jazz Festival

August 18, 2017, 6:00pm - August 19, 2017, 6:00pm

The Ferrario Southern Tier Jazz Festival (FSTJF) is a two-day jazz festival in Upstate NY. Beginning on Friday, August 18th at the Clemens Center in Elmira, NY from 6:00 pm to 9:00 pm, the event kicks off with an evening of jazz with MARCUS JOHNSON and special guest, flutist ALTHEA RENE! Heavy hors d'oeuvres are included. Continuing into Saturday, August 19th we move outdoors to Thorne Street Park in Horseheads NY from 2:00 pm to 7:00 pm. Saturday's outdoor show will feature international trumpet icon RICK BRAUN, saxophone sensation PAULA ATHERTON, local favorite TOP SHELF, and the students of the Ernie Davis Music Consortium! Saturday's event features lawn seating, food and beverage provided by the EOP CFJP Bistro, and vendors including regional wines. You may bring your own cooler with food and drinks (both alcohol and non-alcohol). Pets and grills are not permitted at this event, please. In its 6th year, the FSTJF is the main fundraiser for the Economic Opportunity Program Inc. of Chemung and Schuyler Counties (EOP). EOP Serves over 5000 people annually in the Southern Tier of NY and provides such programs as Head Start, Literacy Volunteers, Summer Feeding for children and adults, afterschool services, and weatherization services.

M&T Bank, a sponsor of the Ferrario Southern Tier Jazz Festival, will launch a new initiative to collect musical instruments for local students at the Jazz Festival. All instruments gathered will go to the Economic Opportunity Program (EOP) to support its music programs and provide local children with the chance to cultivate their musical talents.

M&T and EOP encourage the community to share their used musical instruments at this year’s Jazz Fest and to let friends know about this opportunity to give back. In addition to instruments, supplies such as music stands, guitar strings and drum sticks, are welcome and appreciated.

To donate an instrument, bring it to M&T Bank’s booth at the Southern Tier Jazz Festival on either Friday, August 18 or Saturday, August 19. On Friday, M&T will have a table inside the Clemens Center, where they’ll be gathering instruments from 6-9 p.m., and on Saturday, instrument donations can be made 2-7 p.m. at M&T’s booth at Thorne Street Park.

For those unable to attend Jazz Fest, musical instruments can be dropped off at the EOP’s headquarters, 650 Baldwin St. in Elmira, during business hours, starting Monday, August 21.
