A new jazz mecca at Green­field Dis­trict

The Philippine Star - - EN­TER­TAIN­MENT -

Mu­sic afi­ciona­dos have found a new home where jazz as an art form is cel­e­brated and kept alive amid to­day’s vi­brantly di­verse mu­sic scene.

Green­field De­vel­op­ment Corp. un­veils Jazz Fest Thurs­days, a premier weekly event that brings to­gether the best lo­cal jazz per­form­ers in an ex­quis­ite al fresco set­ting at the heart of Green­field Dis­trict, the de­vel­oper’s mas­ter-planned com­mu­nity in Man­daluy­ong City.

“Jazz Fest Thurs­days is Green­field’s vi­sion to cre­ate a high-end af­ter-of­fice leisure venue in the metro that is laid­back and en­joy­able, yet also keeps the lo­cal mu­sic cul­ture con­tin­u­ously thriv­ing,” says Green­field ex­ec­u­tive VP and GM lawyer Duane A.X. San­tos.

The jazz sub-cul­ture in Philip­pine mu­sic has long been alive and well, with a strong fol­low­ing es­pe­cially among ex­ec­u­tives, pro­fes­sion­als and mu­sic con­nois­seurs. With Jazz Fest

Thurs­days, Green­field is bring­ing a fresh take on the leg­endary mu­sic genre that will make it even more ap­peal­ing and rel­e­vant to peo­ple, ac­cord­ing to San­tos.

Green­field Dis­trict is the per­fect con­ver­gence point for mu­sic lovers in the city, with its open-air Cen­tral Park where the renowned Green­field Week­end Mar­ket is also held. Green­field Dis­trict is eas­ily ac­ces­si­ble be­ing bound by the ma­jor thor­oug­fares of EDSA and Shaw Blvd.

Jazz Fest Thurs­days will fea­ture a re­laxed yet el­e­gant out­door lounge setup per­fect for un­wind­ing with friends, fam­ily mem­bers and fel­low mu­sic lovers. Sought-af­ter veteran jazz acts as well as up-and-com­ing tal­ents will pro­vide a va­ri­ety of per­for­mances that surely make the event a weekly must-see.

En­hanc­ing the mu­si­cal ex­pe­ri­ence is a gas­tro­nomic feast fea­tur­ing not only fa­mous Green­field Dis­trict restau­rants and bars, but also some of the best and most pop­u­lar es­tab­lish­ments in the nearby famed Kapi­tolyo area.

The weekly Jazz Fest Thurs­days will start on March 23.
