To cultivate the love of jazz.
Founded in 1998, JazzMN’s mission is to cultivate the love of jazz through concerts and educational experiences. JazzMN accomplishes its mission through the musicians of the JazzMN Orchestra, a 17-piece professional big band, featuring locally-based "top-call" musicians and internationally known guest artists. JazzMN’s guest artists have included highly regarded performers like Arturo Sandoval, Wycliffe Gordon and Minnesota’s own Maria Schneider. JazzMN attracts one of the largest audiences for jazz in the region, averaging 500+ in attendance at most shows. Aside from performances, JazzMN musicians and guest artists provide educational clincis and master classes to thousands of students throughout the region.
