Watch DC Jazz Festival From Comfort of Your Home This Saturday

-

The DC JazzFest From Home Series is offering jazz fans the opportunity to enjoy the festival virtually for free during the coronavirus pandemic.

You can catch this week’s edition of the DCJazzFest From Home video series through the event’s YouTube channel and Facebook page on Saturday, July 25 at 7 pm.

The weekly series features never-before-seen footage of performances from year’s past as well as live-streamed shows from DCJF artist albums.

“Since 2005, the DC Jazz Festival (DCJF) has provided enriching and entertaining jazz programs that introduce students and adults from all walks of life to jazz, our nation’s singular original art form. DCJF presents a selection of the genre’s most acclaimed artists as well as emerging artists, and provides enhanced exposure to the rich treasure trove of musicians from the DC area. Throughout the year, DCJF nourishes the community with free education programs that extend our reach into underserved communities and enhance the quality of life for DC public and charter school students,” the event brief says.

If you are interested in supporting the featured artists and the DCJF Music Education Program, you can make a contribution to the Artist Support Fund. The program provides academic instruction to students around the DC metro area.

The 2020 DC JazzFest was postponed to the fall, while it was originally slated to take place in June, as part of measures against the spread of the coronavirus.
