“We are very pleased to resume the jazz concerts this year,” said Albert Brooks, APFJ president. “APFJ’s last two seasons were canceled due to COVID concerns. Prior to that, APFJ had presented a jazz concert series every fall for 33 consecutive years — a remarkable feat for a small, totally volunteer-led and operated not-for-profit organization. We will be announcing our 2022 fall concert season soon.”
