Festive Trees and Kitchen Jazz at the YWCA

 . . 

 The Schenectady County Historical Society and the YWCA of Northeastern NY kicked of their fundraising Festival of Trees last night, with a Night of Lights soiree at the Historical Society (32 Washington Avenue) and a Christmas party for staff, residents and volunteers at the YWCA (44 Washington Ave.).   I attended the Y’s Party, to see Kitchen Jazz perform holiday tunes, with Richard Genest of Arthur’s Market and Sylvie Briber (above right) on vocals; they are backed up by Dave Kitchen, guitar, Jim Connelly, bass, and Norm Ainslie, drums.; with Doug Chilton (above left) sitting in on piano for the party. Kitchen Jazz was smooth and loose and the party guests enjoyed their seasonal musical renditions.

As you’ll see in the following slideshow, there was a plethora of well-decorated trees.
