Jazz on the Square starts tonight!

OUTDOOR EVENTS SEASON IS BACK!
JAZZ ON THE SQUARE SET TO BEGIN IN APRIL


The City of Spartanburg and presenting sponsor QS/1 will once again be bringing live Jazz music to downtown Spartanburg when the 2010 season of Jazz on the Square begins in April. The series is returning to Morgan Square for its fifth season and will be held every Friday in April and May and then again in September and October. Concerts are 5:30 to 7:30 p.m.

“Fans can bring a blanket or chair and listen to some fantastic jazz music,” said Coordinator Jane Warner. “Several brand new jazz groups will be performing this year – including Capital Jazz, who will be kicking off our season on April 2.” Other groups scheduled to perform include Blue Chip Jazz, Dirty Martini, Calvin Edwards Trio, and the Firecracker Jazz Band.

The open venue and free admission provides the entire community an opportunity to enjoy Spartanburg’s beautiful surroundings while listening to great musicians. Wine, beer, and soft drinks are available for purchase at the event.

Jazz on the Square is produced and coordinated by the City of Spartanburg’s Special Events Office. Event goers can check the Special Events Hotline number at 864-596-3613 for updated information and any cancellations because of inclement weather.

The City is committed to promoting responsible drinking. Alcoholic beverages will not be served to minors or intoxicated persons. Anyone wishing to consume an alcoholic beverage must show a valid ID and wear a wristband. Guests of Jazz on the Square are asked to leave pets and coolers at home.
