2021 Burlington Discover Jazz Festival

50 Saxophones

Burlington Waterfront


This year’s Burlington Discover Jazz festival is a celebration of our many communities reuniting after more than a year of loss and isolation. So what better way to launch the festival than with a participatory community procession on the Burlington waterfront? 50 Saxophones will be a unique moment of communal catharsis and music making. For this event, all saxophonists—all ages and backgrounds—are invited to join together to play a selection of pieces and make some collective noise. This gathering is a way for community members to participate in the festival, and help to initiate a weeklong celebration of the energizing power of live music.
