 Sally Ramirez Holiday Special at Jazz Central

Patrons encouraged to drop off board games at the show

Syracuse NY – For the second year, CNY Jazz will present a family holiday special by singer and actress Sally Ramirez, “Songs from The Heart/Canciones del Corazón.”  The family-friendly show will feature Sally and her accompanist Doug Robinson, who will perform traditional holiday songs from around the world. The live production is scheduled for December 8 at 7 p.m. at the Jazz Central theater and will be simulcast for virtual home viewing. Additional 7 p.m. shows will be available for streaming from December 15 through 19.

Ramirez is a singer, actress, teacher, and vocal coach whose music covers the range from jazz to Renaissance to folk. A veteran performer on a national scale, she has performed across the country in musical theater, operettas, and jazz venues. Now actively performing across upstate New York as a musician and actress, Sally has appeared on television in The Young and the Restless and American Family. She has appeared in Syracuse in the Jazz at the Cavalier series in recent years.

“Sally can literally do anything, in terms of singing in multiple styles and languages,” said Larry Luttinger, her CNY Jazz host. “She’s equally adept at Jazz, Bossa Nova, and other Latin and World Music styles, meshing seamlessly with Doug’s virtuoso accompaniment on classical guitar. We’re so glad to be able to bring her here for a live show, since last year, by necessity, she appeared virtually.”

Attendees are encouraged to bring traditional “old school” board games or UNO decks to this show or any other December shows at Jazz Central. They will be donated to the Joe Family Foundation for Disability Advocacy for distribution at their December 21 “Home for the Holidays” distribution event organized by 1199 SEIU and the Greater New York Hospital Association. Games must be complete, either new or used. For more information about that event, contact Latoya at 315-640-0015 or Nadia at

Ticketholders must show proof of vaccination or negative test within 72 hours of performance time and remain masked in the theater unless eating or drinking. Children under 12 are encouraged to provide vaccination proof but are not required to do so if accompanied by fully vaccinated adults.
