For over 40 years the Atlanta Jazz Festival has been how thousands of jazz fans have kicked off the summer. The COVID-19 pandemic has left us all craving for live music. Shelter at home orders and social distancing have caused the cancellation or the postponement of music festivals and live music performance around the globe. I was saddened to see that the Atlanta Jazz Festival was the latest festival to fall victim to COVID-19.
With the Atlanta Jazz Festival postponed, the Libro Musica team is collaborating with artists to bring you a Virtual Jazz Festival. This special event is scheduled for Memorial Day Weekend 2020 and will stream live on our Facebook and YouTube channels beginning at 8PM ET on Saturday, May 23rd. Even though we call can’t get together at Piedmont Park we want to help feed your craving for live music.
Virtual Jazz Festival Featured Artists
Performers scheduled to appear include: Lola Cole, Dwan Bosman, Prisca, Kara Frazier and Jill Rock Jones. Stay tuned to Libro Musica as we add more artists to the line up. Take a listen to our featured artists below.
