Abiitan Mill City hosted a lively “Jazz It Up” event June 5 featuring acclaimed vocalist Connie Evingson and pianist Marie Louise Knutson.

More than 200 Abiitan residents, families and friends gathered at the MacPhail Center for Music, across the street from Abiitan, for an eclectic repertoire of jazz standards and reinterpretations of newer music in jazz style. 

“This was the most impressive and most successful event we have had since our opening!” said Tommaso Cammarano, Abiitan Programming & Events Manager.

After the concert, attendees gathered across the street at Abiitan’s restaurant, Smith & Porter, for drinks and appetizers and mingling with the artists.
