As one of BRIC’s premiere performing arts programs, BRIC JazzFest aims to bring together jazz world legends, rising stars, and emerging musical geniuses who are pushing the boundaries of the jazz genre, some through the lens and influence of hip hop and others through a musical style all of their own. The 2022 festival will mark the first BRIC JazzFest since the public reopening of BRIC House. The acclaimed marathon Jazz festival will take place across two stages.
Wes Jackson, BRIC President, said today:
"BRIC JazzFest is a special experience, where we build a stage in the middle of our fall Contemporary Art gallery show, open up the doors of our ballroom, and welcome people into our cultural home for three nights of nonstop music. It's an immersive display of emerging and established talent that brings all of the different parts of BRIC together. I couldn't be more thrilled for this year's BRIC JazzFest, and to welcome you back into BRIC House for the first time since our public reopening."
