The musician, saxophone player and well-known composer Charlie Parker, who passed away in March 1955, left behind a long musical legacy. His legacy is preserved, among other things, at the festival named after him that takes place every year in NYC.
The festival that is going on for more than 20 years hosts well-known jazz artists alongside the future generation of young artists who play Parker’s music in its special characteristics.
The visit to the free festival is a great experience for all music fans, not necessarily jazz lovers.
The festival’s program, lineup information show time / schedule of events, how to get etc. is present in the City Parks Foundation website. See details below, under “Event Related Information” section.
