It is with pride and pleasure that the Jazz Artists of Charleston invite the Lowcountry celebrate the 3rd Annual Jazz Artists of Charleston Day.
Three years ago, Mayor Joe Riley declared April 9th as the official day to celebrate, remember, and enjoy local jazz. JAC Day is also perfectly aligned with recognizing jazz in America during the month of April - Jazz Appreciation Month.
To celebrate these occasions, JAC will extend the holiday from one single day event into a week-long celebration of the rich and vibrant jazz culture in Charleston. There are fve days of programming to celebrate the work of JAC and CJO, while raising awareness and funds to keep the mission and vision moving forward.
Here's what's coming our way:
- Monday: Rhapsody In Blue Green feat. Gill, Singleton, Sterbank @ the Charleston Jazz House
- Tuesday: See Jazz feat. Pulse Trio @ Jericho Advisors
- Wednesday: Rhapsody In Blue Green feat. Gill, Singleton, Sterbank @ the Charleston Jazz House
- Thusday: South Carolina Hit Parade feat. The Charleston Jazz Orchestra Chamber Ensemble @ Memminger Auditorium
In addition to the planned shows, there will be JAC talks everyday during JAC Week from 12 to 2 p.m. at the Charleston Jazz House (185 St. Philip Street). Mnday's topic: JAC/CJO mission,vision and progression.
