Free Summer Jazz in the Park Series Starts This Week
Toledo’s free, family-friendly Jazz in the Park Series, which is part of the city’s summer youth programming, begins this Thursday, June 10, at Glenwood Park, located at Nesslewood and Robinwood avenues.
Students from Toledo School for the Arts will perform for residents in smaller neighborhood parks for the jazz series. Smaller parks were selected to encourage use and neighbor interaction. The TSA students, as part of funding support from the City of Toledo, will receive job training and performance opportunities. The students will be compensated for their time as part of the city’s summer youth employment program. Special guests will join the students for the performances.
All of the Jazz in the Park shows will run from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m., weather permitting. The other shows scheduled this summer are:
