Annual ‘Jazz for Kids’ program is Thursday at Greenvale


PORTSMOUTH — The 18th annual “Live Jazz for Kids” is on Thursday, Feb. 23, from 1-4 p.m. at Greenvale Vineyards, 582 Wapping Road. 

The program was created 18 years ago as a way to introduce children to the sounds of jazz in a fun and creative environment.

The musicians – Dennis Cooke, Tish Adams, Yvonne Monnett and Rick Wells – will entertain with songs kids know and love in a jazz setting incorporated with old-time standards.

The event is free and open to the public. Complimentary refreshments will be served for the kids, and wine tastings are available to purchase for adults. All of the wines are made from estate-grown fruit. Wine tastings are $12 per person and include a complimentary logo glass.
