Syracuse Jazz Fest

Onondaga Historical Association Recognizes 35 Years of Syracuse Jazz Fest.

All that jazz! Take a journey through 35 years of the history of Syracuse Jazz Fest. The Onondaga Historical Association is offering a visual exhibit located on the second floor’s west gallery at the OHA Museum located just minutes away from us in downtown Syracuse. It’s a wonderful way to spend the afternoon, especially for music lovers visiting with us this summer and fall. The exhibit is free and will run through October 3, 2017.

What does the OHA Museum showcase? Visitors can view highlights of the Syracuse Jazz Fest, from the different venues, to music industry superstars and jazz legends, as well as homegrown musical talent. With a variety of musical tastes that exist in the Central New York area, Syracuse Jazz Fest has touched almost all of them.

Take a walk down memory lane! Just a few of the many wonderful things that you will be able to view include Dizzy Gillespie’s bulging cheeks while playing trumpet, Jean Luc Ponty’s electrifying violin, B.B. King’s guitar Lucille, Buckwheat Zydeco’s accordion, Wynton Marsalis’ big band style orchestra, or Kenny G’s saxophone; or maybe singing to the songs of Aretha Franklin, the Doobie Brothers, Boz Scaggs, Natalie Cole, or Smokey Robinson.

With help from Jazz Fest founder and Executive Director, Frank Malfitano, the Syracuse Jazz Fest visual exhibit is a must-see attraction while in town. The OHA Museum is located at 321 Montgomery Street in
Syracuse, NY.
