Jazz in June returning this summer

A long-standing tradition in Lincoln, Jazz in June is a delightful summer event for Lincolnites and their families.

Organized by the Sheldon Museum of Art, the University of Nebraska–Lincoln School of Music and many other sponsors, the Jazz in June series presents a different jazz performance every Tuesday evening in June. This year’s performers include the Kendra Shank Quartet, the Valerie Capers Ensemble featuring Victor Lewis, Angela Hagenbach and Jackie Allen. 

Located west of the Sheldon Museum of Art on 12th and R streets, the music begins at 7 p.m. Come down early to catch the Jazz in June Market, starting at 5 p.m., where a variety of vendors offer food, drinks and unique merchandise.  

Although the event is free, concertgoers are encouraged to make a minimum donation of $10 per family to continue the series.

For the best seating locations on the plaza west of Sheldon Museum of Art, come early with a blanket or lawn chair for comfort. To insure the safety of all concerned, pets are not allowed at concerts.
