Virtual 2020 JazzFest White Plains

The 2020 JazzFest White Plains festival returns for its ninth year this September as a virtual event for the safety of performers and their fans. The four-day celebration of jazz music and culture sponsored by Bank of America runs from Sept. 8 to 11 on Facebook Live and Zoom. The seven virtual events will feature performances and talks by several jazz stars in Westchester County and New York City, including eight-time Grammy Award nominee and composer Bobby Sanabria; singer Alexis Cole; and drummer Ulysses Owens Jr., who played on vocalist Kurt Elling’s Grammy-winning album Dedicated to You: Kurt Elling Sings the Music of Coltrane and Hartman.

ArtsWestchester, City of White Plains and the White Plains Business Improvement District will present this season’s festival as a series of stimulating live-streamed programs. Programs will include thought-provoking discussions, energetic performances and educational demonstrations. The events range from a panel discussion on ‘Jazz Education in Westchester’ to an all-originals set by the Isabella Mendes and Flavio Lira Duo, whose work is rooted in Brazilian jazz and bossa nova.

The virtual JazzFest events are scheduled for noon, the afternoon and evening. The events are free but registration to attend is required. For a full list of the events and registration links visit: https://artswestchester.org/programs/jazz-fest-2/
