WCR Center for the Arts is a new jazz destination this year. Josh Taylor and Cammie Harris share the story
Lots of ‘Firsts’ in this Backstage Pass for the Boscov’s Berks Jazz Fest. Cammie Harris, Executive Director of the Women’s Club of Reading Center for the Arts, makes a connection with Josh Taylor, guitarist with The Hot Club Of Reading, to stage a gypsy jazz event at the WCR Center for the Arts. The character and history of the building meshes with the passion and history of gypsy jazz kept alive by the Hot Club Of Reading. Josh Taylor talks about the impact of this music in particular the way Josiah Taylor, his son, has caught the jazz bug and the ripe old age of 16! Cammie is equally passionate about preserving and promoting the WCR Center for the Arts as an intimate venue to celebrate the music in Berks County. Find out what drives their passion in this Backstage Pass. Enjoy the stories of the Boscov's Berks Jazz Fest Backstage Pass Series made possible by the Berks Arts Council.
