Last month the Empire Jazz Orchestra and big band fans joined together to bid farewell to the band’s founder and musical director Bill Meckley with one final concert at Schenectady County Community College’s Carl B. Taylor Auditorium.
Ah, but not so fast…
As it turns out, Meckley will have one more concert with the EJO before he hands over the reins to trumpeter Dylan Canterbury. Meckley and EJO will play their final concert together at the Music Haven in Schenectady’s Central Park at 7pm on Tuesday, July 10. Admission is free.
