The Big Band Concert scheduled for August 28th at Waveny Park in New Canaan has been postponed until Thursday, August 29, due to inclement weather. The Concert is sponsored by HTG Investment Advisors Inc. of New Canaan which is celebrating its 20th anniversary this year. Brought back by popular demand for the season’s concluding concert, "The Fairfield Counts" echo the sounds of legendary bands such as Duke Ellington, Count Basie and Tommy Dorsey. Harvey Tuckman started the "Fairfield Counts" to breathe new life into the immortal Big Band repertoire, captivating a new generation of music lovers. Beginning at 7:30 p.m., the free concert traditionally draws hundreds of fans who arrive early to enjoy their picnics on the great lawn behind Waveny House.
HTG has sponsored musical events at Waveny for the past 13 years according to Jeanne Gnuse who, with her husband, Tom, is co-founder of HTG Investment Advisors.
"Through our concert sponsorship we are celebrating the community that has helped us grow over the past 20 years, allowing us to give back to the community," Gnuse said.
The New Canaan residents founded HTG in 1993 as a fee only, independent advisory investment firm. It has grown from a two-person, home-based business to a company of nine employees in a suite of offices at 50 Locust Avenue which manages over $300 million in assets as of the last regulatory filing, and serves over 175 families locally and around the country.
