In honor of International Women’s Day on March 8, the 26th Annual Balcones Heights Jazz Festival is proud to announce its all-female lineup for its summer concert series. The free festival located at Wonderland of the Americas Amphitheatre in Balcones Heights will feature eight renowned female jazz artists during the free 4-concert series, from July 12 through August 2, the first event of its type in South Texas.

This year’s headliners and opening acts are widely recognized jazz musicians: Wednesday Ball, Ragan Whiteside, Michelle Carey, Jessy J, Elizabeth Mis, Jeanette Harris, Kayla Waters and Lindsey Webster.

For four consecutive Friday evenings in July and August, the festival’s laid back and family-friendly atmosphere will
welcome an estimated 4,000 jazz fans from in and around Texas.

“This year’s female led lineup is inspired and dedicated to the many women who lead positions, here at Balcones Heights,” said Lorenzo Nastasi, City of Balcones Heights Director of Economic Development & Public Affairs. “From our mayor to the general manager of this great concert venue to the planners of our festival, women make it happen and we are excited to feature a jaw dropping roster of talented and accomplished artists this summer in their honor, making this year’s Balcones Heights Jazz Festival one to remember.”

Since 1993, the Balcones Heights Jazz Festival has captivated jazz aficionados every summer. Regulars or “jazz babies” have been known to stake out their claim, with lawn chairs and blankets in tow, days in
advance of the event at favorite spots along the edge of the sparkling reflecting pool and fountains of the city’s main
hub, Wonderland of the Americas.

David Muñoz, host of “Sunday Morning Jazz” on iHeart Radio’s Q101.9 will emcee the festival. He’s hosted the Jazz Festival for the past 25 years. Muñoz can now be heard around the clock talking about jazz and upcoming shows on the station’s newly launched “Smooth Jazz San Antonio” on the free iHeart Radio app.

July 12, July 19, July 26, and August 2 (rain or shine)
