The Chelsea Art Museum (CAM) is proud to present for the second consecutive year World of Jazz, a concert series, developed in collaboration with jazz saxophonist Lars Haake. World of Jazz features talented emerging artists on the New York Jazz scene, who focus on the distinctly international character of contemporary jazz.
Concerts take place in the museum’s exhibition space, where the visual and performing arts come together to create a truly unique cultural experience for audiences. The concerts are followed by a light brunch and discussion with the artists, in a friendly intimate setting.
Tickets include the concert and discussion, a light brunch, and access to CAM’s newly developed roof-top with beautiful views of the Hudson River and the New York City skyline.
