Milwaukee’s favored free, outdoor summer music series “Jazz in the Park” kicks off tomorrow, June 1 2017 at the Cathedral Square Stage with Extra Crispy Brass Band. The summer’s lineup includes jazz, funk, R & B, reggae, blues, and more. Concerts take place every Thursday evening in the summer, 5pm-9pm from June 1 until August 31 in Cathedral Square Park located at 825 N Jefferson St.
In the heart of downtown Milwaukee, Jazz in the Park is a nonprofit organization in which the proceeds go towards the high cost of production.
