Magnolia Party – Cunneen Hackett Arts Center
May 4, 2017 @ 5:30 pm - 10:00 pm EDT
The Cunneen-Hackett Arts Center, a 501(C) 3 nonprofit Arts organization, holds its 11th Annual Magnolia Party, on Thursday May 4, 2017, at 5:30 pm. This event is a fabulous fundraiser supporting the ongoing preservation and maintenance of the historic, landmark Victorian structures that house the Cunneen-Hackett Arts Center; located at 9 & 12 Vassar Street in Poughkeepsie, NY.
This year’s Magnolia Party features live music by Cross Cultural Connection Jazz Workshop performers with their instructor, award-winning jazz saxophonist, composer and educator, Ray Blue. The party starts with wine, heavy hors d’oeuvres and a gallery exhibit by local artist Sean Lynch who will be on hand to talk about his work. Then the Magnolia Party continues across the street at 8:00 pm in the acoustically brilliant Victorian Vassar Brothers Institute auditorium for a memorable concert featuring professional jazz musicians and highly motivated students who have completed an intensive jazz workshop.
The Arts Center will offer the jazz workshop series with instruction from Ray Blue this Fall culminating with another jazz performance. Tickets for the Magnolia Party and concert are $50.00 per person. Reservations: call 845-486-4571 or buy tickets on line at www.cunneen-hackett.org.
