Fridays at Fowler: BMS Jazz Series with Rafael Rosa

Once again, September is swinging -- every Friday evening throughout the month, thanks to the prolific musicians from Brooklyn Music School (BMS)! These talented teachers know how to jam -- and you can join them, at these lively street jazz sessions, free and open to all. No instrument? No problem -- just pull up a chair and enjoy the show! You can even grab dinner to go from a FAB restaurant nearby and bring it to the plaza!

Our weekly happy hour jazz series in Fowler Square continues with premier guitarist and composer Rafael Rosa. Born in San Juan, Puerto Rico, Rafael taught himself the guitar at age 14 and has gone on to perform at renowned venues such as the Blue Note Jazz Club, The Rainbow Room, 54 Below, Dizzy’s Coca Cola Club and many more, since his arrival in New York in 2011. He has recorded as both a sideman and bandleader and graduated from New York University’s Steinhardt School of Music with a Masters Of Music in Jazz Performance.

Rafael is currently part of the Guitar Faculty at Brooklyn Music School, as well as being the Director of the Music Mentor Program. If you've got some musical chops, come run with Rafael on Friday, September 20 at 5:30 pm!

The BMS jazz music series is presented in partnership with Brooklyn Music School, a cultural district community institution since 1912. Learn more about their programs and classes on their website:
