August 31, 2021 By Christian Murray
Live jazz returns to Flushing Town Hall.
The venue will host its popular monthly jazz concerts – in person – starting in September at historic 137-35 Northern Blvd. building.
The monthly concerts, officially called the Louis Armstrong Legacy Monthly Jazz Jam, will resume on Wednesday September 8 at 7:00 p.m. The event had taken place every month, virtually, during the pandemic.
“On behalf of Flushing Town Hall and the Jazz Jam house band and production team, let me say how thrilled we are to have everyone come back for a jam live, in person,” said said Flushing Town Hall director of education and public programs Gabrielle M. Hamilton. “Over the past 17 months, as musicians have joined us online, we’ve heard amazing jazz from all over the world, including six of the seven continents, but now it’s time to play it back in person!
Since the concerts went virtual in March 2020, more than 200 musicians from more than a dozen countries – from as far away as New Zealand, Italy and South Africa – have participated in the monthly jams.
More than 7,000 viewers from around the world tapped into the monthly concerts to listen as the venue put its programming online.
Starting September 8, monthly jazz jams will be performed live from Flushing City Hall, just like before the pandemic, with participating musicians and an audience of jazz fans in person.
For those unable to attend, virtual audiences around the world can still join the livestream and connect for free through Flushing Town Hall’s Facebook page.
In accordance with New York City’s COVID-19 policy, all visitors, artists, and staff will be required to show proof of vaccination. Masks must also be worn at all times.
Participation in the jazz jam is $ 10, although it is free for participating students, teens, members and musicians.
