Annual Holiday Concert

Featuring Annie and the Hedonists

7:30PM – Eisenhart Auditorium, Rochester Museum and Science Center

Free and open to the public

The GVC has delighted in the joyful music of Annie & the Hedonists each February for a number of years as part of our annual Loj Trip’s weekend of skiing and snowshoeing in the High Peaks. In December of 2010 and again in 2012, we were able to coax them into traveling to Rochester for our Holiday Program, and now they’re back for another thrilling performance next month! Annie & the Hedonists features lead vocalist, Annie Rosen; guitarist, Jonny Rosen; multi-instrumentalist, Peter Davis; and bassist, Don Young. Annie’s emotive vocals are accompanied by tight-knit harmonies and a variety of lead instruments, including acoustic and tenor guitar, and clarinet. Acoustic Blues, Vintage Jazz & Swing, and Folk Roots Americana are finely crafted by Annie’s sassy renditions of some of the timeless, nostalgic songs of the American jazz tradition.

The band performs primarily in the Northeast. Members of the group have also been featured in a number of other bands, including Reggie’s Red Hot Feet Warmers, the Doc Scanlon Trio, Lindy Hop Heaven, and Swingology. Peter Davis is a regular performer on “Dancing on the Air,” hosted by Jay Unger and Molly Mason on Northeast Public Radio (WAMC). The band’s most recent recording of a CD titled “Women Be Wise” includes an array of songs from the 1920s and 30s from such artists as Sippie Wallace, Bessie Smith, Billie Holiday, Sister Rosetta Tharpe and Louis Armstrong. Other songs include two from Bob Dylan, plus country blues, gospel and western swing. You may visit their web site at to watch nine videos of their fabulous music and where you may also listen to songs from their newest CD at

Please join us on Wednesday, December 9, at 7:30pm for a toe-tapping and foot-stomping evening of fun and exciting rhythms and lyrics! Champion: Jet Thomas

Ambassadors Wanted

We’re looking for folks that would be willing to share their ADK experiences with others.

Did you know that our Chapter is frequently invited to set up a display and talk about ADK at schools, health fairs, malls, expos and other locations? While we love to participate in as many of these as possible, it often proves difficult to find volunteers in a timely manner. To solve this problem, we’ve set up a Google Group called GVC Ambassadors. We’re asking anyone who would be interested in promoting ADK-GVC to join it. NO COMMITMENT IS REQUIRED … When we get an invitation we’ll send it to the GVC Ambassadors email list. If it’s a time you are free and willing to attend, just let us know!
To sign up, just follow this link   and select ADK-GVC Ambassadors to sign up for email.
