Free Latin Jazz concert tonight in Chestnut Hill

Hooray for July! It’s that essential time of summer meant for sitting back and enjoying outdoor concerts with good friends. Everyone in Philly knows that. Join the laid back, free Wednesday night concerts already in full swing at Pastorius Park.



Karen Rodriguez Latin Jazz Ensemble performs beginning at 7:30 p.m. at Pastorius Park. Rodriguez describes her music this way; It will make you feel like you just walked into a Cuban nightclub circa 1950. Rodriguez lives in Bristol, PA.

Showtime forecast – Clear skies with temperatures in the upper 70’s.
