The City of Syracuse is a major supporter with the CNY Jazz Arts Foundation for this cultural event.

This year, Jazz in the City will be honoring Mayor Matt Driscoll at the first concert on July 30th for all his support. In 2005, Mayor Driscoll helped bring back the Jazz in the City concert series with the CNY Jazz Arts Foundation after a two-year hiatus. The concert series since than has had 10 concerts in the neighborhoods of Syracuse, attracting more than 8,000 people. With several more concerts this summer, we expect a couple more thousand people will flock to the neighborhoods of Syracuse to enjoy some great Jazz and R&B. In turn, Jazz in the City wants to thank Mayor Driscoll for all his efforts with this recognition.
