Faced with canceling their all-star jazz series due to COVID-19, the village of Pinecrest, FL, has reimagined it as a livestream worldwide event and fundraiser for both Pinecrest Gardens and World Central Kitchen, a nonprofit founded by acclaimed international Chef José Andrés, feeding victims and medical personnel nationwide.

Renowned for his singular combination of robust swing and poetic insight, GRAMMY winner Kurt Elling has secured his place among the world’s foremost jazz vocalists. Declared “the standout male vocalist of our time” by The New York Times, Elling has garnered unprecedented accolades, including a 14-year run atop the DownBeat Critics Poll and eight Jazz Journalists Association awards for “Male Singer of the Year.”

The full Banyan Bowl Live series will feature Jon Secada, Dee Dee Bridgewater, Kurt Elling, the Glenn Miller Orchestra, Wycliffe Gordon, Grace Kelly, Joey Alexander, and Manhattan Transfer. Tickets are $15 USD each or $87 for the entire series and may be purchased at
