Jazz in the City: The New York Connection

October 11, 2017 @ 7:30 pm

Historian, music aficionado and NYC native, Charles R. Hale narrates this musical tribute, transporting the audience back intime through personal recollections, anecdotes and stories of the artists and musical geniuses who created the great American Songbook and made New York City the jazz capitol of the world. The program features singer, pianist David Raleigh, and his trio and special guest, County Leitrim, Ireland native, vocalist Niamh Hyland.


Charles R. Hale was born, raised and educated in New York and is a descendant of New York City’s Irish famine immigrants. He works at the interface of history, music and art in his historically themed shows and in his writing. His shows include “The Musical History of the Lower East Side,” “New York City: A Shining Mosaic,” and “Jazz and the City: The New York Connection.”  His family and ancestral history essays have been published in numerous on-line journals and literary magazines.

The Society looks forward to welcoming Charles, a great friend, and guests to perform Jazz in the City: The New York Connection with members and new friends. There will be a Meet the Artists Reception to follow.
