The acclaimed JAZZ IN THE CITY Neighborhood Outreach Concert Series returns in 2015, featuring national and local jazz artists, plus talented students recruited from the Syracuse City Schools…JAZZ IN THE CITY reconnects urban residents to their culture, brings diverse groups from the suburbs and the neighborhoods together, and provides educational and cultural benefits to youth and residents. UNDERUTILIZED CITY PARKS, neighborhood centers, and commercial corridors gain meaningful use, URBAN ARTISTS gain meaningful employment, MINORITY SMALL BUSINESSES are invited to vend at no cost, and COMMUNITY SUPPORT GROUPS are offered a public forum.
Jazz in the City will return to the neighborhoods of Syracuse this August! Watch this space for dates, times and artists. Thanks to a “Challenge America” grant from the National endowment for the Arts, we will be presenting a robust series to benefit Syracuse’s neighborhoods.
Events will all be Thursdays in August and early September, from 7-9pm.
