Garden City Jazz Calendar of Events (GET TICKETS)
September 1, 2017 – June 30, 2018
“We (are) seeking partnerships with business owners, government officials, and non-profits to present music in public (and sometimes, unexpected) spaces. By its nature, jazz music has a definite structure and form. The theme is clear, yet variation is expected. So, from street corners, to the urban green space of the Augusta Common, to the steps of the Municipal Building, to parking garages and of course, Riverwalk. Our ultimate goal is community engagement, to create great experiences, “ –Karen Gordon, Director, Garden City Jazz
