Jazz singer to perform at library
Minor Memorial Library in Roxbury will hold its 24th annual McCann concert Aug. 27 at 3 p.m.
Acclaimed jazz singer Liz Childs will commemorate the 80th anniversary of the building of Roxbury’s Hodge Memorial Library, the predecessor to the Minor Library, with a program of Jazz standards from the 1930s, the golden age of big band music.
The McCann concert has been sponsored by the Connecticut Community Foundation, and admission is free.
Other events to celebrate Hodge Memorial Library’s anniversary will include a series of lectures in the fall and oral histories in the late fall and winter.
