Event Description

Jazz Under the Stars concerts are sponsored by the PLU Department of Music and performed in our outdoor amphitheater, nestled between the wings of the Mary Baker Russell Music Center. Bring your lawn chairs and your picnic food. Coffee will be available. Wine, beer, and snacks are also available for purchase. The series runs on Thursday evenings (see dates below), 7:00-9:00pm, and are NEVER cancelled due to weather. When the weather does not cooperate, concerts are moved into Lagerquist Concert Hall. As an added bonus, Associate Professor of Music Paul Tegels offers an intermission performance on the world-famous Fuchs pipe organ in our beautiful concert hall.

Our 2019 six-week concert series will take place on the dates below. Thank you for your support, and we look forward to seeing you under the stars this summer!
