OHA Opens Jazz Fest Exhibit

Celebrating 35 Years in CNY

The Annual Syracuse Jazz Fest is about a month away, but preparations are already underway for the special 35th anniversary.


The Onondaga Historical Association is helping to kickoff the early celebration with the opening of a Jazz Fest History exhibit.


The exhibit consists of a wall of photos from the past thirty-five years of the festival. Jazz Fest founder, Frank Malfitano, says the photos are from various photographers downtown who have been attending the annual event from the 1980’s to today.


All of the images are of the jazz artists who have taken the stage and created an impact in the community through the music.


OHA Executive Director, Gregg Tripoli, says jazz and music in general represents a big part of American history and this festival defines part of the history of Central New York.

The new exhibit can be seen at the Onondaga Historical Association at 321 Montgomery St., Syracuse. Anyone can visit Wednesday through Friday from 10am-4pm, or Saturday and Sunday from 11am-4pm. You can also visit www.SyracuseJazzFest,com for more information.
