Did you pick up your tickets to the Deer Isle Jazz Fest and more information on the schedule last Friday from 10AM to Noon at the Stonington Farmers Market? No?
That’s okay we have the skinny:
Opera House Arts (OHA) celebrates the 14th edition of its annual Deer Isle Jazz Festival at the Stonington Opera House, overlooking Maine’s busiest commercial lobster port, July 31-August 2, 2014. The 14th annual festival deepens lasting community ties with world-class jazz musicians and extends its presentation of the most innovative jazz on the national scene. This year’s event amounts to a jazz-piano summit, featuring two astounding pianists, New Orleans’ HENRY BUTLER and Panamanian DANILO PÉREZ, each of whose artistry owes to an environment shaped, like Stonington’s, by a relationship with surrounding waters, with their trios.
Tickets for the festival may be obtained online at http://www.operahousearts.org; or by calling or visiting Opera House Arts’ box office, on the corner of Main and School Streets in Stonington, 207-367-2788. All shows are at 7 p.m. Tickets are $35 for premium reserved seating; $25 general admission; with fixed income and student discounts available. Island Students Free, including students in the Brooklin and Sedgwick schools.
