WELCOME BACK QUINCY JONES
Did you know one of the most influential American composers hails from Bremerton? It’s true, Quincy Jones spent time as a young man in our city and started studying music the moment he touched a piano in the Bremerton Armory.
As a community we want to celebrate Quincy’s career, his influence on popular music and his legacy here in Bremerton by renaming downtown 4th street to Quincy Square.
It’s amazing what our community can accomplish together! Just a few years ago, Quincy Square was an inspired suggestion offered during a meeting of the Bremerton 4th Street Action Group. And with dedication and hard work, Quincy Square in Downtown Bremerton is near reality.
HOW IT ALL GOT STARTED
THANK YOU, QUINCY JONES
He said "yes"! We are honored and so excited to celebrate Quincy Jones and his legacy here in Bremerton.
