City of Atlanta Mayor's Office of Cultural Affairs

This week on WCLK's The Local Take(Saturdays 8am), I reached out to Camille Love, the Executive Director of Cultural Affairs for the City of Atlanta, about the ELEVATE Atlanta Arts Festival, taking place from September 10th - October 30th. 

Support for WCLK programming comes from the Mayor's Office of Cultural Affairs, presenting the 43rd Annual Atlanta Jazz Festival returning on Labor Day Weekend, Sunday September 5 and Monday, September 6 at Piedmont Park. The event is open to the public. This year's lineup includes Sean Jones, Archie Shepp, Mike Phillips, Miguel Zenon, Ron Carter, Jazzmeia Horn, Theo Croker and more.

The City of Atlanta – Mayor’s Office of Cultural Affairs is presenting a free, eighteen-episode virtual jazz series, called In the Tradition, which will feature jazz artists interviewed by local Atlanta jazz and art leaders. Jazz lovers can view the video interviews live on AtlantaFestivals.com, Facebook, YouTube and Channel 26 on select Tuesdays from April through August 31, 2021.

Atlanta's Jazz Station 91.9 WCLK is the Official Radio Station of the Atlanta Jazz Festival. Drummer Lil John Roberts stopped by Morning Jazz this morning to talk about his upcoming performance at the Late Night Jazz Jam Concert taking place on Saturday, May 25 at 10pm at the Park Tavern at the Southeast corner of Piedmont Park as part of the    2019 Atlanta Jazz Festival. He'll be joined by The Senators in a tribute to Herbie Hancock. This is a separately-ticketed event to the Saturday and Sunday concerts in Piedmont Park, which are open to the public.

Thanks to everyone who stopped by the Jazz 91.9 WCLK tent during Memorial Day Weekend at the 41st Annual Atlanta Jazz Festival at Piedmont Park.  We did our no rain dance and it worked. Everyone enjoyed great performances at the Contemporary Stage which included : Terri Lyne Carrington and Social Science; Jazzmeia Horn; and, Cory Henry and The Funk Apostles, among others.
