“Jazz Junction” is a benefit concert for the Greater Madison Jazz Consortium. The concert will be partly a celebration of the progress made in our local jazz scene over the past 7 years and partly a tribute to bassist and UW School of Music Professor John Schaffer (whose leadership was key to the establishment of the UW Jazz Studies Program and the recruitment of Johannes Wallmann to be its first director). The concert will feature performances by the UW Jazz Faculty Ensemble and the Madison Jazz All-Stars, a rotating group of some of our community’s finest jazz musicians anchored by Professor Schaffer on bass. Discounted advance tickets are available at https://jazzjunction2019.bpt.me. Proceeds from Jazz Junction will help support the full array of Consortium performance and education programs.
