NBC12 VIEWPOINT: The Richmond Jazz Festival At Maymont

NBC12 VIEWPOINT: The Richmond Jazz Festival At Maymont

By: Kym Grinnage email 

One of the best weekends of the year in Richmond is upon us. This weekend the Richmond Jazz Festival at Maymont celebrates its 6th year in Richmond. And I am proud to say that NBC12 has been a proud sponsor since the beginning.

Nothing brings people together better than music, and what better way to spend time with family and friends than listening to classic jazz, smooth jazz, R&B and neo-soul presented by world renowned national and local artists.

The Richmond Jazz Festival has helped put Richmond on the map as one of the most progressive cities in America. We are very fortunate to have corporate citizens like Altria who have supported this festival since its inception.

And if you have never been to Maymont, you have missed visiting a national treasure. So, while you are there say hello to Ms. Lauryn Hill , Natalie Cole, David Sanborn, Pat Martino, New Edition, Anthony Hamilton, the Spanish Harlem Orchestra, Sharon Rae North, Debo Dabney and the list goes on and on and on!

So come out this weekend and be a part of what is best about Richmond, our music and our people!!
