Jazz Duo Bo & Bill Winiker to Present Outdoor Concert June 23

Short Performance to Take Place at Millis Senior Housing

They grew up ina Millis, and now jazz artists Bo & Bill Winiker will bring their talents back to their hometown for a small outdoor performance for residents of all ages at Millis Senior Housing, at 310 Exchange Street in Millis. The free, short, socially-distanced concert will take place from 4-5 p.m. on Wednesday, June 23, 2021.
Bo Winiker began performing professionally at 10, right in Millis, in the Winiker Family Band. Bo graduated from the New England Conservatory of Music, where he joined the Grammy-award-winning New England Conservatory Ragtime Ensemble. Bo toured with the ensemble for 25 years, under conductor Gunther Schuller. From 1972-1973, he was featured trumpet soloist with the Stan Kenton Orchestra and has soloed with the New York Philharmonic and Cleveland Orchestras.
Bill Winiker, a graduate of the Boston Conservatory of Music, is a charismatic drummer and skilled bandleader. A music historian, Bill produces many original programs on American popular music and jazz.
Residents of Millis Senior Housing are encouraged to enjoy the concert from their porches, or to pull up a lawn chair in marked, socially- distant spaces in the courtyard. A limited number of chairs will be provided. In case of inclement weather, the concert will be rescheduled to a time to be determined.
This concert is funded by the Millis Cultural Council, a local agency, which is supported by the Massachusetts Cultural Council, a state agency.
