‘Purple Rhapsody’ is THE signature outdoor concert event in Gwinnett County, and it’s taking place Saturday, September 17, 2022, 4:00 pm at the Bowl @ Sugar Hill. The event was born in 2014 as ‘Jazz On The Green’ and sought to bring the entertainment experience of both local and well-known artists to communities outside the perimeter. Postponed the last couple of years due to the pandemic, the event highlighted smooth tunes and mostly jazz musicians, combined with food, wine and the ambiance of music played under the stars.
In this seventh edition, we’ve rebranded the event – Purple Rhapsody. As interest has grown over the years, we’ve expanded the artist lineup to include multiple music genres, added more vendors and cultural exhibitors, and moved to one of the top outdoor venues in the Southeast – the Bowl @ Sugar Hill.
Lastly, ‘Purple Rhapsody’ is about more than experiencing great music with great friends. Presented by See It Through Foundation of Gwinnett, ‘Purple Rhapsody’ is a key vehicle in funding the foundation’s annual scholarship fund and endowment and its numerous philanthropic causes. ‘Purple Rhapsody’ is truly a musical and cultural experience for a greater cause.
This year’s edition is headlined by R&B/Neo-soul sensation Vivian Green, accompanied by 2021 Smooth Jazz Artist of the Year, Willie Bradley, and followed by one of the top funk cover bands in the southeast – Gritz & Jelly Butter. Come out and support a great cause – college scholarships – and enjoy one of the top outdoor concerts of the year. Purchase your tickets now at purplerhapsody.org.
