Summer 2022 free music lineups are popping up all around the state, and the annual “Jazz on Jay” series in Schenectady once again has a stellar lineup to share.
Every Thursday, a free jazz performance will take place on the corner of Jay Street and State Street from 12 noon to 1:30 p.m., perfect for lunchtime enjoyment in the Electric City. Jazz enthusiasts will get to enjoy singers and instrumentalists from across the region.
The series kicks off on Thursday, June 9 with Colleen Pratt and Friends, in conjunction with Downtown Schenectady ArtsWeek.
If you’re a fan of jazz, then Jay Street in Schenectady is the spot to be. The performances will go on rain or shine, with a rain location inside Proctors Theatre’s Robb Alley.
