What could be better than a weekend of jazz on sunny Florida’s Amelia Island Oct. 16-19? (Check out the line up.)

How about the company of the Amelia Island Jazz Festival’s official artist, Marcus Glenn, and Park West Gallery’s music-loving and art aficionado Gallery Director Morris Shapiro?

On Friday and Saturday, the duo will be at the annual festival hosted by jazz great Les DeMerle.

Marcus’ artwork will be exhibited and available for purchase.

The Festival presents world-class jazz in many styles, including swing, bebop, Dixieland, big band, Latin, and contemporary. During the week-long festival, held in October each year, music is performed by jazz greats as well as fresh, up-and-coming young talent. Performances are staged in several venues around Amelia Island including the OMNI Hotels & Resorts Amelia Island Plantation. The Amelia Island Jazz Festival helps preserve the American art form Jazz by increasing the exposure and awareness of the music genre to the general public.

      Yes – We’d posted about it earlier. We agree the timing of the newsletter made it pretty short though if you were just hearing. Be sure to like Park West on Facebook and check back with the blog regularly to see what’s new. Thanks for the feedback!
