Closing out their 2017-18 season, Jazz at Saint Mary’s will host their semi-annual Jazz Final on Sunday, May 6, 2018 beginning at 3 p.m. on the Plaza. This spring’s performance will continue the celebration honoring the musical legacies of jazz giants Sonny Rollins and John Coltrane.

Twice yearly, all three jazz groups get together for an informal afternoon of great music in a casual setting. The event is free and public is invited to bring a blanket or a lawn chair and join the musicians as they celebrate the end of another great year of jazz at Saint Mary’s. In case of rain, the event will be held in the Cardinal Club.
