Clifford Brown Jazz Concert Festival
The Clifford Brown Year-Round Jazz Festival showcases musicians from all over the world. In November, the featured event was an album release concert by The Whitney Project led by Jonathan Whitney and featuring works from his new album “Life’s Dimensions”. December’s event will celebrate the holidays with the Cartoon Christmas Trio and the Wilmington Children’s Chorus. These concerts will be hosted by two Wilmington arts venues: The Delaware Contemporary and Christina Cultural Arts Center. The concert series continues in 2021 with jazz musicians from Italy, a celebration of jazz vocalists, and an homage to the life of writer and political activist Alice Dunbar Nelson. “In a time of separation and uncertainty we still have the ability to connect through music,” says Cultural Affairs Director Tina Betz, “The year-round concert series is a chance for people to gather in their homes and really get to experience not just the music but to connect with musicians through question and answer. It’s an incredible opportunity for all jazz-lovers and a boost for the local arts and music scene.” For times and tickets, click here to visit the CityFest website.
