Tri-C JazzFest Cleveland

Thank you to all who attended the 43rd annual Tri-C JazzFest Cleveland, presented by Keybank, June 23-25 at Playhouse Square! The crowd was great and it was so nice to hear live jazz once again under the GE Chandelier.

Reviews

2022

"Like with most festivals, the pandemic put the kibosh on the event's usual format. After a two-year hiatus, all activity recently shifted back downtown [Playhouse Square] for an inspired return to form. In customary fashion, local acts held forth on the outside stage, while ticketed concerts took place inside at the various theaters. The educational component also returned with vigor as the additional Next Gen Stage hosted many student ensembles." -All About Jazz (Part 1)

"The Tri-C JazzFest did a fantastic job of ensuring that those who arrived with open ears, discovered at least one artist who they fell in love with." -All About Jazz (Part 2)

"After eating a Po’boy from The Dawg Bowl Cajun food truck, I caught the first half of Brian Culbertson’s show in The Connor Palace Theatre. Playing to a packed house of enthusiastic fans, whom he thanked for their love and support throughout his career, he put on an excellent show full of lights and well-designed choreography. His band played with exuberance and swagger." -Cleveland Classical (Review 1 of 3)

"It was eclecticism employed in the service of the continuum of the music. A continuum the dazzling Tri-C [Jazz]Fest both celebrated and joyously expanded. What more could you ask of a jazz festival?" -All About Jazz

"After a 2020 season of virtual performances, the festival returned to an all-star, in-person lineup this year. Ten mainstage acts made up the schedule for the 42nd annual Festival, and if there was a connecting thread through this diverse lineup, it was that artistry always came first." -Cleveland Classical
