Jazz Around Town: Where to find jazz in Rochester over the next seven days

The United Nations has designated the first Monday each October as World Habitat Day. Please join Habitat for Humanity in coming together and declaring that the lack of decent, affordable housing for all is unacceptable. Follow the link to see what you can do.  One way is to volunteer for Project Homeless Connect at the Rochester Blue Cross Arena on October 15th.
