Airs during All that Jazz Nov. 7 - Nov. 18 at 7p on WVIA-FM
WVIA-FM's annual coverage of the Delaware Water Gap Celebration of the arts will be heard on All That Jazz in ten installments Monday through Friday, Nov. 7-11 and 14-18 from 7 to 8 PM.
The Celebration of the Arts (or COTA) marked its 39th edition, taking place outdoors in downtown Delaware Water Gap, September 10 and 11. This year's festival paid tribute to one of the festival's founders, Grammy-winning saxophonist Phil Woods, who passed away shortly after last year's festival. As usual, WVIA recorded all of the festival's music, and All That Jazz producer and host George Graham will present comprehensive coverage with 10 hours of music and interviews.
