On Saratoga’s second annual Freihofer’s Jazz Fest Friday, June 28th, the Saratoga Performing Arts Center and Caffè Lena will present fourteen-time Grammy®-nominated jazz pianist and composer Fred Hersch to celebrate the 50th anniversary of The Stonewall Riots. The performances are slated for 6 p.m. and 8:30 p.m on June 28 at Caffè Lena.  “An Evening with Fred Hersch: 50 Years After The Stonewall Riots” will pay homage to The Stonewall Riots, which occurred on June 28, 1969, and are considered to be the catalyst to the gay liberation movement and the modern fight for LGBTQ rights in United States. Fred Hersch will perform original pieces in addition to iconic jazz works, while also sharing how The Stonewall Riots shaped him, his career, and his growth as a musician, drawing from his memoir Good Things Happen Slowly.
