Since 2005 September in Pittsburgh means it’s time to celebrate Jazz Poetry at City of Asylum. This year, Jazz Poetry 2021 melds all the opportunities of virtual programming with the thrilling return to in-person concerts, all while speaking to the very core of City of Asylum’s mission to protect and celebrate creative free expression.
There will be 9 completely different concerts including 4 international commissions created specially for Jazz Poetry 2021. Some will be virtual, some will be live-streamed from Europe directly to Pittsburgh, and some concerts will be live at City of Asylum @ Alphabet City. All concerts will continue to be streamed on our virtual programming channel. There are plenty of options to tune-in and participate and we’re welcome to welcome back this community in whatever way suits you best.
