The Clarion at Brazosport College announces the return of its popular series, “Jazz in June,” featuring intimate jazz concerts throughout the month of June.

“Jazz in June” is a Jazz Listening Room-style series of jazz concerts held in the Clarion lobby and will feature musicians from the Brazosport and Houston areas.

The Jazz Listening Rooms Series will run every Tuesday in June, with shows starting at 6 p.m. The Clarion lobby will be transformed into an intimate jazz club setting. Hors o’deuvres and beverages will be served.

Each Jazz Listening Room session will focus on a different style or topic in jazz. The first session June 6 will feature Houston-area vocalist/saxophonist David Caceres. The series continues June 11 with trombonist/composer Vincent Gardner, followed by jazz pianist Jose-Miquel Yamal June 18.

“Jazz in June” will also include a special event at 7:30 p.m. June 7, when the Brazosport Big Band performs a free concert featuring original compositions by Brazosport College Director of Music and Brazosport Big Band member Richard Birk. The show will be recorded for an upcoming live album.

Admission to the “Jazz in June” series is free and no tickets are required.
