Multi-instrumentalist, bandleader, composer and educator Dr. John Calloway will be honored in a special concert and tribute on June 20 when he receives a local “Jazz Hero” award from a national jazz writers organization.

The event, which runs from 6:30 until 9 pm, is free and open to the public, and will offer light appetizers, beverages and a musical performance by the Latin Jazz Youth Ensemble of San Francisco, of which Calloway is the musical director. Other testimonials and musical performances will be announced soon.
