'We Six' take the stage at 'Jazz in the Park' 🎷

MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- Cathedral Square Park in Milwaukee was filled with the sounds of some of the city's most talented jazz musicians on Thursday, Aug. 17 as part of "Jazz in the Park."

"We Six," the resident ensemble of the Milwaukee Jazz Institute reunited on stage after an extended break during the COVID-19 pandemic.

The "Jazz in the Park" series is put on by the East Town Association, whose leaders say they have an important partnership with the institute.

Eddie Sturkey, Executive Director of East Town Association said, "Jazz has an extensive history in the City of Milwaukee, and the Milwaukee Jazz Institute really helps to keep that tradition alive, and to keep recruiting those new generations of musicians that can keep playing on this stage."

"We Six" has been taking the stage at the park for 20 years.

There are still two more nights of "Jazz in the Park" left during the season, with Caché MKE featuring Salsabrositas Rumba Caliente taking the stage on Aug. 24 and The Kal Bergendahl Project (KBP) + “Come Together” (The Beatles Soulfully Reimagined) on Aug. 31.
