Since the onset of COVID-19, MOCA suspended the Jazz at MOCA concert series due to health protocols. With the goal of ensuring the continuity of Jazz at MOCA, the museum will launch the program virtually, in partnership with WDNA Radio—South Florida’s premier jazz radio station. Hosted by WDNA’s Carter Jackson-Brown, the virtual series will feature the best of South Florida’s young and innovative musicians. The concert will take place virtually on the last Friday of every month at 7:00 p.m.Thank you for using Soul Of Miami!
