Meriden Public Schools Visual & Performing Arts Created with Sketch.

The MPS Jazz Festival

Looking for some great jazz in an amazing setting? Look no further! Meriden's famed bandshell will be transformed into a jazz club for the night as we feature all of our secondary jazz ensembles from the Meriden Public Schools. We are very proud to share that all of our middle and high schools study, promote and take the art of jazz and improvisation seriously. Jazz is a true American art form and something that we value in the Meriden Public Schools. Come join us as we bring jazz festivals back after a long pandemic pause. Bring your lawn chair or blanket, relax and enjoy some jazz at Hubbard Park!
