From July 24, 2014 – August 28, 2014
Our city’s great weekly jazz tradition returns to Millennium Park this summer! It celebrates 10 years this summer with a diverse program featuring concerts that explore jazz connections to Africa, the Middle East and the rhythm and roots of the South. The 2014 series includes tribute concerts and retrospectives, along with opening night of the 36th Annual Chicago Jazz Festival.
All concerts begin with a short set by young, aspiring musicians from Chicago-area high schools as part of the Jazz Institute of Chicago’s Jazz Links Student Ensembles.
