"Jazz Music Legends of Oak Lawn:" a Local History exhibit

Date: Saturday, April 27 from 6 to 8 p.m.
Location: Second Floor Local History Room

Join us in celebration for the opening of OLPL's latest Local History exhibit, "Jazz Music Legends of Oak Lawn." For nearly 25 years, Oak Lawn Community High School hosted the Oak Lawn Jazz Festival, one of the biggest high school jazz competitions in the country, which ran from 1960 to 1985.

Take a look into the past through the exhibit's photos and memorabilia. Enjoy light refreshments and the musical stylings of Oak Lawn Community High School's current jazz students. The exhibit will also show homage to rock n' roll music, featuring concert photos by local photographer AJ Roccaforte, who worked with both REO Speedwagon and Styx, bands with deep roots in Oak Lawn. All of this and more can be found during this after-hours event. 

Can't make opening night? Don't worry! The exhibit will be on display throughout 2024. Come back for more musical performances from a variety of jazz groups that will be hosted here throughout the year.

We hope you'll join us to reminisce and celebrate Oak Lawn's great music legends!
