Some of the nation’s top jazz artists will perform in Huntsville this September as part of the annual Jazz in the Park-Huntsville concert series. Artists slated to perform at this year’s festival were revealed Wednesday, continuing what has become a popular musical tradition in Huntsville.

As with previous years, these free performances will be each Sunday in September at Big Spring Park East.

“Music is a universal language. When people come out for Jazz in the Park, they have an opportunity to connect with people across the whole spectrum of our community.”

Kenny Anderson, Director of the City’s Office of Diversity, Equity & Inclusion.
