Join us at Tandem Press for the annual Friday Jazz Series featuring students from the UW-Madison Mead Witter School of Music’s Jazz Studies Program, led by Johannes Wallmann, the John and Carolyn Peterson Chair in Jazz Studies. The 2018-2019 series, beginning on October 5, 2018, includes three concerts during the fall season and three in the spring. Tours of the Tandem Press studio will be offered during the intermission of each concert. Come enjoy some great jazz music, learn about Tandem Press and the field of printmaking, and see the current exhibition hanging in the Tandem Press Apex Gallery. All of the concerts in this series are free and open to the public. Ample free parking is available.
