Something Smooth

Caesar croons in the park

Jazz balladeer Caesar will bring his smooth, baritone vocals to Bronson Park Aug. 18.

The Chicago native, who can sing in five languages and has toured with Julio Iglesias, Herbie Hancock, Lou Rawls and many others, will perform at the outdoor venue at 6:30 p.m.

Caesar’s performance is the last of this summer’s Thursdays in the Park — Live! series and is a collaboration of the Arts Council of Greater Kalamazoo, Fontana Chamber Arts and the City of Kalamazoo. The concert is free. To enhance the evening’s enjoyment, a beer tent sponsored by Arcadia Ales will be available for those 21 and over. Food trucks will also be on hand from 5–8 pm.
