A voice from Solvay inspires audiences and shares messages of hope

— Anyone who meets Solvay resident and director of marketing, communications and public relations at the Centers at St. Camillus Joanna Jewett for the first time will immediately recognize her enjoyment of life.

Everyday Jewett communicates messages that inspire hope for rehabilitation and independence. She is also a local singer who can be found performing soul and rhythm and blues at Club Sushi and Mohegan Manor.

“I absolutely love my work and I love to perform,” Jewett said. “Do what you love and it doesn’t feel like work, right?”

Her musical talents will be highlighted at VOICES, a fundraising event for the Hiscock Legal Aid Society and Everson Museum of Art that celebrates the act of finding one’s voice, whether through art or legal advocacy.

“I’m looking forward to participating in VOICES,” Jewett said. “It’s my belief that if you have a gift to share, then share it, especially if you can share it in a way that helps others. I support the cause and vision of this event and I’m very excited to perform and hear some great music.”

The event will be from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m. on Oct. 6, at the Everson Museum of Art, 401 Harrison Street, Syracuse.

VOICES offer an opportunity for guests to support two organizations that encourage and promote expression. Admission is $125 per person. Reservations are required. For more information and to purchase tickets visit everson.org.
