Isthmus Jazz Festival

June 7 @ 5:00 pm - June 16 @ 10:00 pm

The Isthmus Jazz Fest will run for 10 days, from Friday 6/7 through Sunday 6/16, with concerts and other jazz-related events each day at traditional and non-traditional venues all over town, including the traditional two days of free concerts on the UW Memorial Union Terrace (6/14-15).  The full Fest schedule is now posted at Among the Fest events are Madison Jazz Society’s 35th Anniversary Dance Party & Mini-Fest featuring the New Century Jazz Orchestra on Sunday afternoon, 6/9, at the Wyndham Garden Hotel and the Madison Music Collective-produced concert by Chicago-based saxophonist Mai Sugimoto’s quartet + Madison’s Anders Svanoe Trio at the new Winnebago Arts Cafe.

The Jazz Fest will kick off on 6/7 at 5:00 PM with the Jazz Consortium’s “Strollin’ Monroe Street” event, with 10 bands performing a stylistically-diverse array of jazz styles at 5 venues over 6 hours, with no cover charges, on the 1500-1900 blocks of Monroe Street.  Volunteers are needed to help the event run smoothly.  If you’d be able to put in a shift or two, please view the shift options on the sign-up sheet at (where you’ll also see the event’s performance schedule):
