Live Jazz will be heard throughout the evening on Sept. 12, as a group of musicians bring their love and concern for the elderly to new heights on the rooftop of Flushing House.
“Jazz Up In The Sky” takes place up on the roof at Flushing House, an Independent Living retirement community in Flushing. This live jazz extravaganza is a special fundraising event, to benefit the 300 older adults who call Flushing House home.
Headlining the evening’s performers is world-famous and Grammy Award winning jazz hero Hernan Romero. The Hernan Romero Group has featured some of the world’s great guitarists, including Al Di Meola, Paco De Lucia and John McLaughlin. This group infuses the exotic traditions of flamenco-gypsy, Middle Eastern and Mediterranean folk music, with sounds of classical, jazz and Latin rhythms. Composer and guitarist Hernan Romero’s music is famous for its sensuous, passionate, romantic and inescapably infectious sounds.
The festival, which runs from 7-11 p.m., features music by other iconic jazz artists including the Michael Feinberg Quartet and Isamu McGreagor Trio. The $100 cover charge – or $150 for couples – includes a gourmet dinner, wine and beer, all served on the Flushing House rooftop, with a dance floor that boasts spectacular views of New York’s panoramic skyline.
The jazz festival will also feature a raffle and silent auction, with prizes donated by major benefactors of Flushing House, all to benefit the nonprofit Flushing House endowment fund.
