The Preserve Hosts Jazz Festival in Support of Haynes Library



On March 28th, 2015, the Levy Preserve hosted ‘Eleuthera All That Jazz’ for the third consecutive year.  The five day festival, which features Bahamian and international artists, is organized in support of the local Governor’s Harbour library, the Haynes Library. The festival has solidified Eleuthera’s reputation as cultural destination within the Bahamas and draws hundreds to the family island each year.


The Leon Levy Native Plant Preserve regularly partners with the Haynes Library, in particular for children’s programming in the summer. The festival's main concert has proven our largest partnership, bringing almost 200 guests to The Preserve for this phenomenal night of music.

This year, the evening began with hors d'oeuvres and cocktails, with guests mingling under the Welcome Centre's coconut grove eagerly anticipating the magical evening of music. Following the cocktail hour, the concert kicked off under The Preserve’s open air pavilion, filling the night with enchanting sounds of Jazz. 


The concert featured several first timers - artists new to the festival, as well as seasoned ‘Eleuthera All That Jazz’ favorites. More information about the artists and other festival events can be found at Eleuthera All That Jazz









The performers kept the audience on their feet and grooving to the music all night long. Photo by Marc Coeffic
