The Birthplace of Clearwater Jazz Holiday

Clearwater


Ft_Harrison_Sign-in.pngOctober 15, 2008, Downtown Clearwater—On Wednesday the 15th of October from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m., The Church of Scientology hosted a cocktail reception in the lobby of the Clearwater Bank Building to showcase to the public for the first time the new designs, handcrafted furniture and special features that will be part of the historic Fort Harrison’s makeover.  The building, which has been an icon in Clearwater since 1926, is being renovated from top to bottom to modernize its facilities and polish up its 1920’s splendor.  The announcement coincided with the Clearwater Jazz Holiday, which grew out of a series of jazz concerts held in the Fort Harrison during the 1970’s.

According to Chuck Adams, the co-owner of the former WAZE radio station and who was responsible for planning those concerts, “Back in those days, the Fort Harrison hosted the likes of jazz greats such as Woody Herman and his Thundering Herd, Count Basie, Duke Ellington, Stan Keaton, and Buddy Rich. That was when I realized how much Clearwater loves jazz.”

Clearwater

September 11th Memorial Video

On Thursday, Sept 11th, the City of Clearwater joined communities around the world from Beijing, China to New York City as they filled the skies with the universal language of music in The September Concert.

The September Concert is a series of free musical performances held in cities around the world on Sept 11th every year in remembrance of the 9/11 tragedy. The concerts offer a way for communities to commemorate this historic date and focus on bringing all people together, reaffirming our hope for world peace and celebrating life and universal humanity.

Sister Cities International is a movement founded in 1956 after U.S. President Dwight D. Eisenhower convened a White House Summit on Citizen Diplomacy. In a speech delivered on September 11, 1956, President Eisenhower called on Americans to forge people-to-people ties with communities abroad and to build a lasting peace based understanding and respect.

Downtown Clearwater

In today’s economic climate, many have the tendency to “cut back” and adopt the mentality of “look out for number one”. But not downtown Clearwater merchant Angela Gioffrè, who owns “Gioffrè”- a woman’s clothing store featuring high-end Italian designs.

Saturday, September 6th, Angela opened up her beautiful boutique located at 8 South Ft. Harrison, to raise funds for the renovation of  the building previously known as the “Bill Irle Dinner Theater” located at 1411 Ft. Harrison.  The theater was purchased by The Community Learning Center and, upon completion of the renovation, will supply the much needed additional space for their expansion.
