WHERE YOUR DOLLARS GO:

WORLD-CLASS PERFORMANCES

Your support makes it possible to bring the greatest jazz musicians from around the world to Lincoln. Jazz in June presents 4-5 world-class performances and reaches more than 25,000 patrons annually.

ARTS EDUCATION & PERFORMING ARTS INSTRUCTION

Master classes presented musicians will be held before or after the shows. The expertise that is conveyed by industry professionals is often some of the most relevant and direct information that perspective young music students can receive. Post-show discussions after performances feature artist and band fresh from the stage to answer student questions and talk about their experiences onstage and off.

NEIGHBORHOOD OUTREACH

We are bringing our mission beyond our stage and into the community, with goals of presenting arts enrichment and residency programs to a growing roster of partners, including local public and private schools, and area non-profits. It is important for us to foster connections between the shows and audiences at Jazz in June and local non-profit arts and education groups such as the Lincoln Arts Council, Lincoln Public Schools, Malone Community Center, and Arts Incorporated.

PERFORMING ARTS MEETS THE VISUAL ARTS

Jazz in June brings the University of Nebraska arts community together. We celebrate music, visual arts and the Hixson-Lied College as we gather together for programs in the Sheldon Art Museum Sculpture Garden outside the Lied Center for Performing Arts. Join us today as a partner in ensuring the vitality of America’s national treasure—jazz.
