BRINGS MUSIC BACK TO CENTRAL PARK FOR MAY 14 BENEFIT CONCERT
Pasadena’s Central Park, a stone’s throw from bustling Old Pasadena, once served as a venue for top music events, art shows and cultural festivities. For the last five years it has been quiet, waiting for a music come-back. This year, with support from the City of Pasadena, the City Council, the Old Pasadena Management District and surrounding retail businesses, the park will once again hit a high note as “Jazzy Jam-Pasadena” relocates from the Rose Bowl’s Area H to Pasadena’s first established landmark park. Proceeds from the benefit concert will support enrichment programs for children and youth served by Charity Events LA and Flintridge Center.
A music medley of old and new traditions, “Jazzy Jam-Pasadena,” takes the audience from straight-ahead traditional to the mellow sounds of Contemporary/Smooth Jazz, and then sprinkles in an eclectic mix of Latin Jazz/Salsa, rounds out the music flavors with a pinch of Pop Funk and R&B Classics, kicking-off the day with a 100 member soulful Gospel Choir, to present nationally recognized artists along with some of Southern California’s best musicians on the scene today.
