Jazz Fest Live

From 7pm to 8pm Central Time


Contact: AARP MN

Join AARP Minnesota, the Twin Cities Jazz Festival, and attendees from across the U.S. for a FREE virtual jazz concert on March 4 at 8pm ET | 7pm CT | 6pm MT | 5m PT – AARP membership not required. 

The musicians of the JazzMN Quintet are all members of the JazzMN Orchestra, the Twin Cities premier professional jazz ensemble. Unfortunately, due to the pandemic, the full orchestra has not been able to perform a live concert for over a year. But JazzMN is still here and plans to return once it is safe to do so. Meanwhile, the JazzMN Quintet will present a historical view of various artists that employed this instrumentation beginning with its infancy in the swing era, into its standardization in bebop, through its heyday of the hard bop era, and more modern explorations in the 1960s and beyond.

The presentation will be moderated by JC Sanford, JazzMN Orchestra's Artistic Director. Accompanied by:

  • Pete Whitman – saxophones
  • Adam Rossmiller – trumpet
  • Mary Louise Knutson – piano
  • Jeff Bailey – bass
  • Phil Hey – drums
