Jazz in the Park


Experience the magic of live jazz under the open sky with NEMPAC’s Jazz in the Park series. Gather with fellow music lovers in a beautiful outdoor setting as talented jazz musicians deliver soulful performances that are sure to leave you feeling inspired and uplifted.

For summer 2024 concert dates are all Thursdays, July 11th, 18th, 25th, and August 1st and 8th.  Concerts are from 6:30 PM to 8 PM.

Led by Artistic Director Stefano Marchese, the series brings together a mix of different cultures throughout the world through contemporary jazz sounds. Jazz in the Park takes the audience on a musical journey that proudly highlights the unique and diverse sounds that unite us all. From the comfort of the Rose Kennedy Greenway, we invite you to join us: All five concerts are free to attend and open to the public! So stop by and help us kick off each of the five Summer weekends. We are looking forward to seeing you on The Greenway, right in front of Canopy by Hilton!

We want to thank our Jazz in the Park sponsors, Canopy by Hilton Boston Downton, Rose Town Kitchen & Bar, Eastern Bank, The Lupoli Family Foundation, The Greenway Conservancy, North Street Grille, and Munroe Morrow Wealth Management.

This free outdoor summer concert series welcomes ALL and is open to the public!

“Since my first season directing the series back in 2017, I have aimed to take audiences on a journey worldwide through the inclusive and diverse model that jazz music represents. As a performing arts center, we transform iconic Boston landmarks like the Rose Kennedy Greenway into nontraditional concert venues. This transformation empowers us to creatively bring live music to you and your family, connecting you and your loved ones with world-renowned artists. Jazz in the Park seeks to represent musically what a community should look like: many different voices on the same stage that together result in beautiful and unique harmonies.”
