Twin Tier Jazz Festival

 ELMIRA (WENY)--The heart of Elmira will be roaring with the sounds of music this summer at this year's Twin Tier's Jazz Festival.

For the 7th year, the Michelob Festival at Wisner Park will feature music from New Orlean's group, 'Aurora Nealand the Royal Roses.'

County leaders worked hard to bring the southern sounds to the Southern Tier.

Elmira Police Chief, Michael Robertson says, “It's a great opportunity for the city for this community to see this caliber of entertainment. these kids are wonderful, they're great musicians so its awesome.”

Director of Elmira Downtown Development, Jennifer Herrick says, “It's proven to be a great success for this community cause it brings a thousand people into downtown of all ages and this year we're hoping to further grow this event by installing that french quarter feel to it and bring a musician up from New Orleans and it's a great accomplishment for this city.”

The jazz festival is August 18th from noon to 6 at Wisner Park.
