Jazz in the Afternoon

Listen to, and learn all about jazz music in this free, family-friendly series from June 23 to July 14.

We are proud to partner with the Tennessee Valley Jazz Society to present this video series in conjunction with the annual Jazz-N-June Festival.  This four-part series will be led by passionate, local educator Howard Bankhead, who has been hailed by the Huntsville Times as "a man with a courageously big heart and bold, unselfish ideas."

During each session we will watch videos that feature the best of jazz music, from John Coltrane to Stan Getz to Billie Holiday, and then talk about them. These programs are appropriate for both adults and youth. Whether you are already a jazz enthusiast, a casual appreciator, or just open to learning more about this truly authentic and inspring American artform, this series is for you!

This series will run for four consecutive Thursdays, from June 23 to July 14, from 1 to 3 pm. Each session will take place in the second floor events room of the Main branch. They are free and open to the public. No registration is required.
