A variety of New Orleans-style piano music from stride to honky-tonk, to ragtime and swing are performed by guest artist Chris Calabrese at Arizona Classic Jazz Society’s monthly event from 1 to 4 p.m. Sun., June 26 at the Crowne Plaza San Marcos Golf Resort in downtown Chandler.


Calabrese will be backed by musicians from the 52nd Street Jazz Band. Cost for admission is $10 for ACJS members, $15 for nonmembers and free for those younger than 18 or for those becoming new ACJS members at the event. Yearly memberships are $25 per single or $35 per couple.


Art Walk moves indoors for June


Artists and patrons will move inside the Crowne Plaza San Marcos Golf Resort for the Downtown Chandler Art Walk, to be held as scheduled from 6 to 10 p.m. on the third Friday, June 17.


“The San Marcos Resort is allowing us to feature artists in their Cibola room,” says Art Walk co-coordinator Maynard Breese, a digital artist. “The San Marcos will also have a cash bar open that night so people can enjoy a cold drink and look at cool art.”


“Our patrons can enjoy wonderful artists in air-conditioned comfort,” says co-coordinator and glass artist Marnie Brookins.


Musician Crazy Cover Keith, who plays ‘70s to ‘90s tunes, will perform on June 17. Breese says he is one of the most popular musicians at the Farmer’s Market. Because of the summer heat, there will not be a charity of the month again until September.


In addition, the Farmer’s Market, which typically runs from 3 to 7 p.m. every Thursday during the season, will continue throughout the summer. Because produce farmer Jeff Scott from Willcox brings his homegrown year items year around for area restaurant deliveries and stops at Dr. AJ Chandler Park, Breese says 13 vendors have committed to select weeks with the farmer “so we can retain some of the momentum that we had developed this year.”

The San Marcos Resort is located at 1 N. San Marcos Pl. in downtown Chandler. For more information, call 480-620-3941 or visit www.azclassicjazz.org.
