Destin Library Jazzes Things Up in April

Published on

April is Jazz Appreciation Month in the United States, as designated by the Smithsonian Institute’s National Museum of American History.

 

The Smithsonian developed the idea to draw public attention to the glories of jazz as both a historical and a living treasure. The U.S. Congress passed legislation in support of this endeavor to emphasize the extraordinary history of jazz and its importance as an American cultural heritage.

 

The Friends Guild of the Destin Library has scheduled a FREE jazz concert for Friday, April 22, at 2 p.m. in honor of Jazz Appreciation Month. The Tall Cotton Trio from Niceville will perform Dixieland and swing music.

 

Throughout April, the Destin Library encourages patrons to explore the wonders of American jazz. Numerous resources on jazz legends, musical instruments characterizing the music and more are available at the library.

 

For more info, call 850-837-8572. The Destin Library is located on Sibert Avenue.
