Join us for an outdoor jazz concert with world-class musicians in partnership with the Jazz Foundation of America.

Born and raised in Harlem, vocalist Annette St. John grew up in an artistic family that influenced her musical style: equal parts jazz, blues, standards, and gospel. She has worked with greats like Jimmy Smith, Della Griffin, and George Benson, and performed all over Manhattan, including at the Apollo, the Blue Note, the Village Vanguard, Smoke, and The Cotton Club. In recent years she has appeared in Japan, and led her own groups in NYC. Annette always says, “It’s Not Work If You Love What You Do!” 

Bring a blanket, mat, or chair for your comfort.

Presented in partnership with the Jazz Foundation of America, with partial support from the National Endowment for the Arts, New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew M. Cuomo and the New York State Legislature, and from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs, in partnership with the City Council.

Please register at The event is limited and participation will be on a first-come, first-serve basis on the day of the workshop.
