Downtown Jamaica Jazz Festival
Following a fall and spring of cutting-edge contemporary jazz artists, JCAL’s jazz season culminates in this annual two-day festival every May. It features headliners as well as emerging and midcareer artists on the grounds of our Jamaica Performing Arts Center.
From JCAL's Artistic Director Courtney Ffrench:
"This is a collaborative experience, a true celebration of life, of music, in every sense. In addition to this lineup, we are seriously blessed to have a staff and production and backstage team that is second to none, and an audience that we think is really ready to come out of their homes and enjoy amazing jazz here on the JPAC lawn. Everyone is welcome, and we’re looking forward to seeing you."
