Washington Park's The Porch, where Jazz at the Memo will move to this summer

Over-the-Rhine's Memorial Hall has extended its popular weekly Jazz at the Memo music series through the end of the month, and has announced its plans to move across the street to Washington Park starting in May. 

On Monday nights, the city’s preeminent artists in the jazz scene perform in Memorial Hall's Anderson Theater for up to 139 attendees.

The series' 2021 season kicked off in January with performances of jazz-styled renditions of Beatles songs, tributes to famous folk artists like Joni Mitchell, and a collection of songs from jazz pioneers.

Upcoming performances in April include the Duo Tachoir performing songs from their newest album Shades of Blue and Cincinnati-based band Brasilia performing American jazz music fused with Brazillian musical styles. 

Each performance will also feature complimentary wine tastings for 21 and older, provided by Revel OTR Urban Winery.

Attendees are expected to follow COVID-19 protocols in the Anderson Theater. Masks are required for the patrons at all times, and six feet in social distance is required for all parties. Seating will be assigned to ensure social distancing, so attendees are encouraged to buy tickets in advance to ensure the party can sit together. 

The May lineup, which will perform at Washington Park's The Porch, has not yet been announced. Visit for updates. 

Tickets cost $8 for adults and $6 for students. Memorial Hall highly recommends pre-order purchases.
