Jazz Greats concerts on the Vineyard Stage have been a summer staple at Glenora Wine Cellars since the first concert was held in 1982, shortly after the winery opened its doors. Over the past 34 years, Glenora has welcomed some of the biggest names in contemporary jazz in the world to its stage overlooking beautiful Seneca Lake and the vineyards. The concert series takes place on the third Sunday in July, and again on the third Sunday in August each year.

Sunday, August 20th, 2017: LINDSEY WEBSTER & GRACE KELLY
We are excited to bring two of the rising stars on the jazz scene to our vineyard stage! Kicking off the August show will be singer Lindsey Webster. From the first note, Lindsey Webster captivates listeners. Her rich, soulful voice enchants a dedicated following who connect with the raw emotion she shares with them. Closing the show will be the Saxophonist, singer, and composer Grace Kelly. Grace plays with the heart and passion of an old soul yet with the genre-bending zest and energy of a 24-year-old. Watch below to catch a glimpse of Grace Kelly & Lindsey Webster in action!
“Grace Kelly has an electric charisma on-stage that instantly ignites the room. She is one of the most kind-hearted, easy-going people I’ve had the pleasure of working with.”
- Jon Batiste, the band leader for The Late Show with Stephen Colbert Having been a regular
