The DC JazzFest, scheduled for June 9-18 with more than 125 performances in 40+ venues, will present an amazing array of emerging and master-level talent that includes more than 90 bands and 300 artists!
“As jazz music has evolved, with musicians from across the planet expressing the music through the prism of their own cultures, it has become one of the true world musics. Based in one of the great global cities, the DC Jazz Festival has since its inception presented music in the proud tradition of the International Language of Jazz.”
“It’s Christmas in June if you’re in the District and a fan of jazz.”
“Jazzy people you are in for a good time! The DC Jazz Festival is in town which means some pretty cool artists and people will be out and about. From Latin Jazz to Creole Soul – your ears are in for a treat.”
“2017 will be a great Festival with something for everyone. Let’s
get our jazz on!”
Since 2005, the DC Jazz Festival organization has provided enriching and entertaining jazz performances and programs that introduce students and adults from all walks of life to jazz, our nation’s singular original art form.
