A series of free lunchtime jazz concerts will be featured at Alamo Park.

Jackson Health System, the Miami Foundation, and the Miami Jazz Cooperative.


Lunchtime in the heart of the Miami Health District will soon include the sounds of saxophones and trumpets, as Jazz at Jackson, begins Thursday, November 5. The free lunchtime jazz concert series will continue every Thursday, excluding holidays, until March 31, 2016. The music will provide visitors and employees in the health district a brief respite from the daily stress of their lives and broaden the audience for jazz, the only original American art form.

The opening lunchtime concert at Alamo Park on November 5 will feature the elite South Florida Jazz Orchestra directed by Chuck Bergeron and guest vocalist Nicole Yarling. The second concert on November 12 will be a Veteran’s Day tribute featuring the Miami Jazz Cooperative’s All-Star All-Vet Jazz Combo.
Each of the concerts will feature a broad sampling of jazz performed by the outstanding musicians in the South Florida jazz community. Three sets of jazz will be at 11 a.m., noon, and 1 p.m.

"The Miami Jazz Cooperative is excited to bring the talent of the South Florida jazz community to lighten Thursdays for the tens of thousands of people who work in and are treated in the Miami Health District each and every day,” stated Rick Katz, executive director of the Miami Jazz Cooperative. 

Jazz at Jackson produced by the Miami Jazz Cooperative with a Public Space Challenge grant from the Miami Foundation and additional support from the Jackson Health Trust, builds on the Miami Jazz Cooperative’s five-year success of its lunchtime Jazz in the Gables concert.
