A St. Louis man and his daughter will play a jazz show with St. Anthony of Padua in St. Charles, Illinois, in 2018.
St. Anthony’s Jazz Festival is expected to host the St. Philip Jazz Festival, the second jazz festival in St Louis since 2017, in 2019.
The festival will feature more than 40 acts and entertain more than 100,000 people.
The St. Joseph Jazz Festival will feature acts such as Bob Marley, John Coltrane and the Roots.
St Louis County’s county music director is also set to host another St. Francis Jazz Festival.
The county’s jazz director, Mark Kowalski, said he will invite St. Marys jazz trumpeter and educator, Alice Brownrige, to the 2018 St. Patrick’s Jazz Fest in St Charles.
Kowalsky said he has known Brownridge for more than 30 years and the two have a deep appreciation for jazz.
Kawai, who teaches classical composition at St. Thomas Aquinas College in St Paul, said Brownridge has been performing with the Blues Travelers and St. Vincent de Paul since the late 1970s.
Kamphuis said he hopes to have a new jazz band playing the St Patrick’s Festival.
The band will play the jazz version of the folk classic “Auld Lang Syne” from “The Last Waltz,” which is a favorite of Brownridge.
St Marys County’s mayor, Kevin Mascia, said the city will host a festival next year in honor of Brownriges life and legacy.
The Jazz and Blues Festival is scheduled for the first weekend in August 2019.
