Jazz in June, market and tours continue

Three concerts remain in the annual Jazz in June series offered at the Sheldon Memorial Art Gallery’s Sculpture Garden.

The free jazz concerts begin at 7 p.m. every Tuesday. In conjunction with the performances, the Jazz in June Market begins at 5 p.m. on 12th Street and offers dinner items, fresh produce, baked goods, ice cream from the UNL Dairy Store and other items for purchase. Also during Jazz in June, children can enjoy the Sheldon Super Sleuth Challenge in the gallery, and adults and children alike can visit the Sheldon’s permanent collection. Docents will be available to provide tours.

Free, guided UNL garden tours are offered beginning east of Sheldon at 6 p.m. June 22 and 29.

In case of rain, concerts will be in the Sheldon Auditorium.

The remaining Jazz in June performers:

June 15: John Carlini is a veteran guitarist and composer whose portfolio includes Broadway, jazz and bluegrass and even the Ice Capades, with whom he was musical director. His arrangements and orchestrations have been performed and recorded by such groups as the Turtle Island String Quartet and the Kronos Quartet.

June 22: Ingrid Jensen is a trumpet virtuoso. She was selected by Down Beat Magazine as one of the “25 most important improvising musicians of the future” and rated in the top three in a number of their critic’s polls for “talent deserving wider recognition.”

June 29: The Nebraska Jazz Orchestra was founded in 1975. The ensemble’s concerts feature a variety of traditional big band compositions by artists such as Woody Herman, Duke Ellington and Count Basie.
