When the usual Geneva Night Out festivities are over, make your way to the Smith Opera House at 82 Seneca Street for a free concert: Our second annual Scott LaFaro Day Celebration Jazz Showcase on April 1st, 2016 at 8:00pm. Admission is free.
April 3rd is “Scott LaFaro Day” in Geneva to honor the legendary and influential jazz bassist here in his hometown. This year, i3° will be performing two sets live on the historic Smith stage. Our most honored ‘guest’ this year will be Scott LaFaro’s restored Prescott double bass, on which he performed and recorded some of the greatest jazz music of all time.
The awarding of the annual Scott LaFaro Memorial Scholarship to a Geneva High School student exhibiting dedication and talent in music will take place during the evening. A rare filmed performance by Scott LaFaro will also be screened as part of the event.
Please join us in our annual salute to Scotty’s music and legacy!
The monthly self-guided walking map, which includes the full lineup of artists, venues, exhibits and activities taking place from 5pm-8pm, will be available soon at participating venues and at participating venues and here on the Geneva Night Out website.
