The Celebration of the Arts (COTA) held their General Meeting at The Deer Head Inn on Tuesday June 8th to continue with their plans for their 33rd Annual Jazz and Arts Festival which will take place September 10th - 12th in Delaware Water Gap, PA. The festival includes an Artist Reception at The Antoine Dutot Gallery for their Music Motif Show, an evening of Classical Music, Theater, and Dance at The Presbyterian Church of the Mountain, and the two day grand festival featuring numerous Jazz greats performing throughout the remainder of the weekend. Over the past 32 years, COTA has become a Mecca for those who love jazz and art
Highlights of this particular meeting included the announcement of COTA‘s new mission statement which was revised so everyone who wishes to become part of the festival and other endeavors are welcomed to participate. These endeavors includes workshops and other community minded activities to promote the arts and all that jazz.
