Listen to free jazz at Columbus Circle this fall

Rebecca Fontana

Like we needed another excuse to go to the mall. This fall, The Shops at Columbus Circle are once again hosting Sessions at the Circle, a series of live performances in collaboration with Jazz at Lincoln Center.

The five weeks of free shows kick off on September 12 at 5:30pm. For the next month, head over to the second tier of the shopping mall every Tuesday. One highlight is a night celebrating Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin and Sammy Davis Jr. on September 19—but check out the full schedule: 

September 12: Micah Thomas
September 19: Charles Turner
September 26: Shenel Johns and Vuyo Sotashe
October 3: Mariel Bildsten
October 10: Veronica Swift

The mall at the southwest corner of Central Park is one of the best places to go for free events: In the past there have been performances from Broadway stars, and every winter there’s a holiday market. And don’t forget that year-round, you can go check out the huge underground mall and food court beneath the shops.
