Queen Esther Marrow: Here’s To Life!
Friday, September 15 at 7PM
Tickets $25/general admission, $15/students under 21 with ID
Queen Esther Marrow’s amazing and varied career has taken her from the turbulent days of the Civil Rights Movement and touring with Dr. Martin Luther King, Duke Ellington, and Harry Belafonte, to appearances with Bob Dylan, Tom Petty, BB King and many others, and on to television, film, Broadway and recording and finally her current super stardom throughout Europe. Her voice, which caused even the Pope to tap his foot, is timeless. Now with “Here’s to Life,” a musical celebration, she comes back to the USA with a jazz flavored evening, especially for SCC audiences.
This is our 32nd season of our famous Concerts in the Park! Check out this year’s lineup:

Syracuse native and New York City cabaret singer Marissa Mulder will showcase the music of singer-songwriter Tom Waits with “Tom … in His Words” Saturday, May 20 at 7 pm at the Levitas Center for the Arts.
Mulder explores some of Waits’ best-known songs, such as “Downtown Train” and “Ol’ 55,” as well as lesser-known treasures like “Broken Bicycles” and “Alice.” Waits — a 2011 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee — has always operated on the fringes, blending strains of jazz and the blues, even vaudeville, into his rock ballads and scores.
The New York Times said ” far and away the season’s best cabaret show. It’s everything the genre can be but almost never is. ”
Prices: $ 25 general admission; $ 35 for ring side tables.
