JAZZY SUNDAYS

Emancipation Park Conservancy, Discovery Green Conservancy,  and Buffalo Bayou Partnership announce the return of the immensely popular, Jazzy Sundays in the Parks, beginning on March 3rd at Emancipation Park!

Made possible by a grant from Kinder Foundation, the series celebrates the vibrancy and rich tradition of jazz and the incredible Houstonians who preserve the artform.  The free, family-friendly concerts will be held Sundays, March 3, 10, 17 and 24 at Emancipation Park; every Sunday in April at Buffalo Bayou Park; and Sundays, May 5, 12 and 26 and June 2 at Discovery Green.  All concerts will be held from 5:00 pm – 7:00 pm and guests are encouraged to bring a blanket or lawn chairs. Food and drink will be available for purchase.

From classic jazz to zydeco, blues and more, this year’s production kicks off at Emancipation Park on March 3 with tunes from R&B vocalist and song-writer, TK Soul, before moving to Buffalo Bayou Park on April 7, where parkgoers can sway to the progressive jazz hits from Grammy-winning musical duo, Ghost-Note. The programming concludes at Discovery Green, kicking off on May 5 with the Latin jazz ensemble, Tim Ruiz and Friends and featuring a performance by award-winning, MacArthur Genius Cécile McLorin Salvant on May 26.
