This year, we’ve partnered with the Central Brooklyn Jazz Consortium to bring free jazz performances to six gardens in Brooklyn and Queens. These small concerts bring an intimate live jazz experience for the communities that these gardens serve. The performances are completely free to attend, but feel free to donate to the gardens, or donate to our organization. There is no limit on who can come in, so if you see the garden open, come in even if you’re passing by for a song or two! See below for full list of participating gardens and performers.
This jazz summer series will be held in community gardens throughout Brooklyn and Queens. They will feature music performed by noted artists from the two boroughs. Six outdoor concerts will take place on Saturdays, beginning June 16 and last through July 28, 2018. The Brooklyn Queens Land Trust is sponsoring the events and programs by the Central Brooklyn Jazz Consortium.
The Brooklyn Queens Land Trust is a non-profit organization, incorporated to manage 34 community gardens in New York City. These open spaces provide an opportunity for people to work cooperatively, as well as engage in educational and cultural activities. The company’s office is located in a Brooklyn YWCA building, near Atlantic Terminal, at 30 Third Avenue, Brooklyn NY 11217.
