2015 PENSACOLA JAZZFEST
The Pensacola JazzFest, now in its 32nd year, is a FREE music festival held in downtown, historic Seville Square. The Jazz Society of Pensacola (JSOP) produces the event with able assistance from a variety of corporate sponsors and community organizations. The two-day festival, held in early spring each year, celebrates America’s unique musical art form - JAZZ. JSOP volunteers work all year to present this festival as their annual gift to the community. We sincerely thank our individual and corporate donors for their essential support.
Headliners this year include the World-famous DUKES of Dixieland from New Orleans and the ever-popular Roman Street from Mobile. Local stars include groups led by Holly Shelton, Gino Rosaria, the Guffman Trio and the Joe Occhipinti Big Band. Add to these all the great school/college bands on the Gazebo Stage and even a special Kiddies Jam with Kazoos and Harmonicas on both days.
In addition to the great music lineup, food, drinks, arts and crafts and jazz merchandise are available - JazzFest posters, a variety of jazzy shirts and memorabilia, plus beer, wine and soft drinks. All jazz merchandise sales help support the festival and keep it free for our loyal fans. Local area vendors will offer some tasty food options for hungry jazz listeners. Bring your lawn chairs and enjoy a weekend of great jazz in Seville Square Park.
THE SAENGER THEATRE CELEBRATES HER 90th BIRTHDAY
The Grand Dame of Palafox turns 90 on April 2nd -"a historic date for a historic and integral part of downtown Pensacola. In celebration of the Saenger’s birthday, the 1952 classic movie musical, “Singin’ in the Rain,” will be shown, sponsored by the Friends of the Saenger.
The screening is Saturday, April 11th at 7 p.m. Consider the admission of only $5.00 a birthday gift to the Saenger Theatre because the proceeds from ticket sales will go to the Great Saenger Pipe Organ Campaign. Tickets are available at the Saenger Theatre Box Office. As with all of the classic movies at the Saenger, seating is general admission.
Looking back to 1925, when the Saenger first opened with the silent film “The Ten Commandments” by Cecile B. DeMille, one would never guess it would still be standing in 2015 and beyond. However, with the ongoing support of the community around her, the Saenger has not only survived 90 years of arts and entertainment, it has thrived.
With backing from both the local populace and the Friends of the Saenger, the Saenger Theatre will continue to delight and entertain generations of area residents and visitors to the community. Those seeking culture will be able to walk under her marquee for music, dance, theatre, comedy and much more for many decades to come.
