A committee of local music industry experts will review the submissions and select which acts ultimately take the outdoor stage between 3 p.m. and 1 a.m. on Friday and Saturday of festival weekend. A variety of genres will be considered, including jazz, blues, R&B, funk, gospel, jam band and reggae.
“We are lucky that so many amazing musicians call Northeast Ohio home, and Tri-C JazzFest is proud to showcase them with a spot on downtown’s biggest summer stage,” said Terri Pontremoli, festival director.
The 37th annual Tri-C JazzFest runs June 23-25. The festival includes nine ticketed concerts inside the historic theaters at Playhouse Square, plus the free outdoor shows on U.S. Bank Plaza.
The schedule of ticketed shows – which features some of the biggest names in jazz – can be found at www.tri-cjazzfest.com.
More than 28,000 people experienced last year’s festival.
Tri-C JazzFest Cleveland is presented by KeyBank and made possible by Cuyahoga Community College (Tri-C®), the National Endowment for the Arts, Ohio Arts Council, Strassman Insurance Services Inc. and a growing list of donors and members.
