Locals in downtown Coral Gables are able to enjoy a break from the work week with free lunchtime jazz concerts each Wednesday on the Plaza of the Coral Gables Museum, located on Salzedo Street two blocks north of Miracle Mile.
“The city is pleased to be bringing back Jazz in the Gables to residents and professionals. This free music event and the chance to hear a different talented jazz performer each week continues to gain popularity, and is a great way to support the local art scene,” said Gables Mayor Jim Cason.
Lunchtime Jazz takes place at 12:15 p.m. every Wednesday through Mar. 27, and features a different artist each week. Box lunches from Catering by Lovables will be available for sale on-site. There will be two additional evening concerts scheduled for Feb. 1 and Mar. 7 at 8 p.m.
The event is a collaboration among the City of Coral Gables, Coral Gables Museum, Business Improvement District, Miami Jazz Coop, and civic sponsors HBO Latin America, and Vizcaino, Gitlin & Zomerfeld, LLP – both of whom have offices in Coral Gables.
“Coral Gables has been home to our Latin America offices for many years, and this sponsorship is our way of saying ‘thank you’ to the city and demonstrating our commitment to the community,” said Miguel Oliva, vice president of Public Relations and Corporate Communications at HBO Latin America.
