Come join us at the 44th Annual Head of the Lakes Jazz Festival this March in Duluth, MN.  As UMD’s Music Director of Jazz Program Ryan Frane put it, “The experiences that people have when listening to great, improvised music are transcendental. This music allows listeners to experience something that is happening "right now" and hear it for the first time just as folks on stage do.  People can take from the concert as much as they would like, from sitting back letting the music take them on an imaginary journey, to appreciating the technical prowess.”

The Head of the Lakes Jazz Festival is considered the “Best Ticket in Town” by past attendees. Frane has said, “It is simply the best quality jazz in the region.” Not convinced? Come see for yourself, starting March 17th through the 18th!
