Central PA Friends of Jazz Fundraiser Honoring Steve Rudolph
Steve will be playing in concert with a band of some of his favorite musicians from over the years. This will be a once-in-a-lifetime performance for Steve, and you don’t want to miss it!
Following the concert, event guests will join Steve for a light reception. Rumor has it that Steve and his musician friends may start a jam session at the reception…
A co-founder of the Friends of Jazz, Steve retired as executive director in October 2019. This gives Steve more time to play, compose, and teach. However, our commitment to sharing live jazz doesn’t end with Steve’s retirement. In addition to celebrating Steve’s years of service to the Friends of Jazz, This One’s For You! will expand the community of supporters we need to ensure that jazz continues to be a major part of the cultural landscape of Central Pennsylvania.

Marty Ashby’s Holiday Jam Featuring Gloria Reuben
Join guitarist and five-time Grammy Award–winning producer Marty Ashby for his annual holiday concert celebration. This year’s special guest is actress and singer Gloria Reuben.
Ashby is the executive producer of MCG Jazz, a program of the Manchester Craftsmen’s Guild (MCG), which he started in 1987. He has performed with a wide variety of musicians, ranging from Nancy Wilson and Ann Hampton Callaway to Paquito D’Rivera and James Moody. Ashby’s annual holiday celebration at MIM has become a tradition since the museum opened in 2010.
Reuben is well known for her roles in major films such as Lincoln, Reasonable Doubt, and Admission, as well as her appearances in various TV series, including Mr. Robot, ER, and Cloak & Dagger. American saxophonist Dave Koz says of Reuben, “It’s Gloria’s elegant, refined voice that holds the listener. So intimate and present, she’s able to paint amazing pictures with her interpretations for these classic songs.”
Please note, the MIM is requiring that audience members either be vaccinated or have a negative COVID test within 72 hours prior to the performance. We also strongly encourage guests to wear masks.
Proof of vaccination or a negative COVID test result will be required for entry and may include the following options: a vaccination card (or photo), a digital record within an app, an official immunization record, or documentation of a negative test result.
