Jazz In Glen Ellyn logo

Two months ago the fate of a jazz festival in downtown Glen Ellyn was as up in the air as George Clooney with the dissolution of the founding partnership between The McAninch Arts Center, WDCB Public Radio, White Space Design and The Glen Ellyn Chamber of Commerce.

Today, the Glen Ellyn Chamber of Commerce announced an impressive lineup for the newly retitled 2012 Jazz in Glen Ellyn for the Saturday, July 14th Glen Ellyn Chamber sponsored event.
