You’re invited to join me for a concert on the sweeping back lawn of Lyndhurst Mansion, in Tarrytown, New York. Mark Morganelli of Jazz Forum Arts puts together a wonderful program of performances here, and at other locations throughout the area. I attended one of these concerts a couple of years ago, and am looking forward to returning – it’s a beautiful location, and the music is fantastic, always a wide variety of jazz artists.
Relax on Lyndhurst’s great lawn and enjoy cool music by hot jazz artists!
