Come out for an evening of unforgettable music and show your support for The Jazz Gallery’s Home Run!
On June 13th at the Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture, The Jazz Gallery will present a concert featuring Claudia Acuña, Kenny Barron, Johnathan Blake, Ravi Coltrane, Vijay Iyer, Kiyoshi Kitagawa, Lionel Loueke, Grégoire Maret, Dafnis Prieto, Henry Threadgill, and more – all in one evening. This will surely be a night to remember.
All of these artists have come forward to support our search for a new home; by joining us on the 13th, you will be helping to ensure our financial stability as we prepare for the move.
We take great pride in our track record of supporting the artistic development of generations of outstanding jazz musicians. We are committed to continue presenting concerts, commissioning new work, and providing free rehearsal space to our roster of exceptional artists.
But we won’t be able to do it without your help. Buy your tickets here, and please spread the word.
Several of the artists performing at this event got their start at The Jazz Gallery; they are members of a family that includes numerous GRAMMY nominees and winners, nine Thelonious Monk Competition winners, and three recent MacArthur Fellows. We hope you will join us in celebrating our history and, in the process, help to carry us into a brilliant future.
