The Jazz Cocktail “Hour”

About the Jazz Cocktail “Hour”

Great jazz for everyone! The evening begins with drinks or a signature cocktail, and small bites. Concerts are held on the second floor, The Univest Room, of  the Uptown! Knauer Performing Arts Center. This intimate room allows the audience to experience the creative, improvisational form of jazz, up close and personal. Sara Michaels, jazz and blues vocalist and local resident, gives a brief introduction to connect the artist with the audience.
