The storied Marriott Syracuse Downtown, the historic Hotel Syracuse, partners with CNY Jazz Central for the “Jazz at the Cavalier” series in the luxurious Cavalier Room. All events will take place Wednesdays from 5:30 to 8:30 pm.

Twenty-eight events are scheduled, featuring over a dozen of Upstate New York’s finest resident jazz and cabaret vocalists with grand piano accompaniment. Among the lineup of artists are Nancy Kelly, who will kick off the series, Ronnie Leige Harrington, Andrea Miceli, Danielle Patrice, Scott Dennis, Just Joe, Rochester’s Jon Seiger, and Ithaca-based Sally Ramirez, supported by pianists Rick Montalbano, Dick Ford, Dave Solazzo, and Jimmy Cox, among others.

Modeled after formats made famous in midtown Manhattan at hotels like the Carlyle and the Algonquin, the series provides an intimate cabaret atmosphere in the cozy, clubby surroundings of the Cavalier Room. 

The series is free, with no cover charge, and holders of CNY Jazz Club cards will enjoy 10% food and drink discounts off craft cocktails and the small plate menu.
