Jazz in the Gables returns with lunchtime concerts until March

The second annual Jazz in the Gables returns with its lunchtime concerts every Wednesday continues through Mar. 28. The concerts begin at 12:15 p.m. on the Plaza of the Coral Gables Museum located on Salzedo Street, two blocks north of Miracle Mile in Downtown Coral Gables.

“Gables residents have long been supporters of quality music, so we are very pleased to be able to present the second annual Jazz in the Gables series that highlights some of the very best talent we have in this region,” said Mayor Jim Cason.

Trumpet player extraordinaire Troy “Satchmo” Anderson begins the concert series performing with his band in a tribute to his idol Louis Armstrong.

Box lunches from Tropico Restaurant will be available for sale. There will be prize drawings every week. The concerts are free and open to the public. The event is presented by the City of Coral Gables in partnership with the BID/Downtown Coral Gables, Coral Gables Museum and Miami Jazz Cooperative, with a portion of the funding being provided by the Knight Foundation.
