Over the past two years, we have brought musicians such as Vijay Iyer, Cory Henry, Andy Akiho, and more to campus. These free concerts featuring everyone from Grammy winners to Yale alumni to new talents have been an integral part of our mission to bring jazz to campus and the community. This year's Festival will take place February 20-2
. We are particularly excited to feature Takuya Kuroda
and the Jane Ira Bloom Quartet
back-to-back on Saturday! As the events are totally open to the community, directions and information on the venues are included below for each concert. Check out the full schedule:
As all events are funded through the generous donations from Yale sources and local businesses, admission to all events will be entirely free with no ticket required. We are very excited to make all these events freely accessible to the public and encourage members of the Yale community and the New Haven, Connecticut, New York Metropolitan areas to attend! The Jazz Festival at Yale is student-run by the members of the Yale Undergraduate Jazz Collective.
