Jazz at Beacon Park: Alvin Waddles
June 14, 2019 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pmFree
A summertime jazz concert series is headed to Detroit’s Beacon Park! Jazz at DTE’s Beacon Park is sponsored by the DTE Beacon Park Foundation, curated by the Detroit Jazz Festival Foundation and produced by the Downtown Detroit Partnership.
The Alvin Waddles concert will be a tribute to Leonard Bernstein. Waddles takes you on a jazzy journey through this American-born, but citizen of the world’s works. The set will include his early academic compositions and Broadway hits like “On the Town” and “Wonderful Town”, his operetta “Candide”, the iconic masterpiece, “West Side Story” and his ground breaking, “Mass”.
The entire Jazz at DTE’s Beacon Park series is free to all and will feature local and national jazz artists with a Detroit Jazz Festival Foundation history. This will be a rich musical experience that shouldn’t be missed!
