The first annual South Beach Jazz Festival will premiere on Wednesday, December 7, 2016, with smooth melodies and syncopated rhythms resounding from a stage on Euclid Circle. A medley of classic, Latin, and New Orleans-style acts will attract jazz fans to South Beach hotels, theaters, and restaurant seats. Over that weekend, open-air performances by local ensembles will draw Lincoln Road promenaders to linger, listen and groove. And even more significantly, the festival musicians will raise public awareness of persons who have disabilities.

A jazz festival unlike any other, the South Beach Jazz Festival will take pride in featuring talented musicians with disabilities. Each act performing under the festival’s auspices will showcase the artistry of at least one person with a disability.

While the music forges bonds between listeners and performers, the sheer talent of the artists will promote the festival’s primary goal, enabling them to be defined by ability rather than disability. It will foster the access they need to participate fully in society as they help beautify and educate our community. In coming years, as a recognized institution, the South Beach Jazz Festival will expand throughout the city and strengthen Miami’s reputation for cultural innovation and inclusion.

Please join us for your support and celebration of yet another world-class event brought to you by Power Access Inc. and Ability Explosion, a 501(c)3 non-profit organization.

American Sign Language Interpreters will be provided at all of the Colony Theater events throughout the South Beach Jazz Festival as well as at the stage on Lincoln Road and Euclid Ave. on Saturday, Dec 10 from 1:00pm to 11:00pm.
