The space will be operational from April 7-11 only and will feature live classic jazz music in a listening room environment – very much like those popular in New York, San Francisco, London, Paris, etc. (read more)

About the annual Jazz Appreciation Month focus, director Karen Gordon explains:
“We are constantly 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, and creating great experiences, “
April 7-11, 2015 (Tuesday through Saturday)
Shows begin at 7:00pm, 9:30 p.m.
