Raissa Recommends - June Picks!

What a month May was! MAC Awards, performances I did and others I saw that I still MUST rave about - I'm still catching my breath and have much to tell, but for now, I wanted to get the news out about our next Tudor City concert.

It's "Jazzy June" and it features an all jazz all star line up - some of my favorite performers and good friends: Scot Albertson, Mary Foster Conklin, Terese Genecco, Marcus Goldhaber, Daryl Kojak, Laurie Krauz, Rosemary Loar, Shaynee Rainbolt. And Daryl, as our Musical Director, will be joined by Cliff Lyons on Sax, Tom Hubbard on Bass and Ray Marchica on Drums! Does it get better than this? Talented David Colbert (who will be a featured performer in the very near future) is filling in as our technical director, while our regular TD, Dr. Garrett Bennett, is busy with patients. Why? Because this is our first MATINEE of the the season. So come join us on Wed., June 10th, (rain date, June 11th) at noon, for two fantastic sets with some of the best in NYC jazz!

Please support the performers who have donated their time and talent to the Greens.
