COCONUT GROVE – Eighteen-year-old Connor Munroe is a Miami native and a senior at Ransom Everglades School, but don’t let his youth fool you. This soulful saxophonist has been performing jazz for half his life, has won numerous awards, and has been selected for 12 All-American and All-State jazz bands. His debut album “Then + Now” consists of classic jazz ballads that Munroe orchestrated and features his signature, expressive sound behind a lush orchestra that includes a jazz big band, strings, and backup vocalists. The album includes 50 contributors, most of whom are contemporaries Munroe met in the South Florida music community. Released last November, “Then + Now” was completed during the height of the pandemic when Munroe said that even finding recording space presented an enormous challenge.
On the evening of the show, park in the neighborhood and head over to The Barnacle where a long, wooded pathway leads to the spacious bayside lawn for open seating on the grass. Masks and social distancing are required, and hand sanitizer will be available. Chairs are available on a first come, first served basis, and patrons are encouraged to bring picnics, blankets and folding chairs. Please leave pets at home and come prepared to pack out all trash as there are no waste bins in the park.
