Library Events - Jazz in the Moonlight Concert

Please join us in celebrating Jazz Appreciate month as the Rainbow Library proudly presents the 6th Annual Jazz in the Moonlight Concert. This very popular concert features the CSN Jazz Ensembles under the direction of Walter Blanton and Bobby Scann.

Did you know that Jazz Appreciation Month was initiated by the Smithsonian Institution’s National Museum of American History (which operates the world’s most comprehensive set of jazz programs) in 2002? According to their website “Each April, Jazz Appreciation Month (JAM) shines the spotlight on the extraordinary history of jazz and its importance in American culture. Through concerts, lectures, films, and other programs, JAM encourages people of all ages to attend concerts, listen to jazz on radio and recordings, read books about jazz, study the music, and support institutional jazz programs.”

This event is very popular so you will want to be sure to arrive early. Bring your picnic basket, blanket or lawn chairs. Glass containers, alcoholic beverages, and pets are not allowed. Free admission. Gate opens one hour before the concert. For more information, please call 507-3711.
