New Strollin' Jazz Fest Coming to Schenk's Corners This Friday

New Strollin' Jazz Fest Coming to Schenk's Corners This Friday


Lesser Lakes Trio is one of ten jazz acts that will play in the Schenk's Corners neighborhood on Friday.

The Madison Jazz Consortium will kick off its new “Strollin'" series this Friday, May 23, with the inaugural Strollin’ Schenk’s Corners. The event will bring eight hours' worth of live jazz to several neighborhood venues in the Schenk's Corners neighborhood on Madison's near-east side. The music starts at the Chocolaterian at 5 p.m. and culminates with a midnight show at the Alchemy. In between patrons can stroll between the Monona State Bank, salon/barber shop Thorps and One Barrel Brewing without paying a cover charge. Performers include Lynette Margulies and Jane Reynolds, Lesser Lakes Trio, Charlie Painter Trio, Tony Castañeda’s Latin Jazz Quartet and El Clan Destino. For the full schedule, visit madisonjazz.org/strollin

Each Strollin’ event is its own mini-fest intended to invigorate neighborhoods by encouraging patronage at area businesses while exposing event-goers to Madison’s outstanding local jazz musicians. Consortium members and producers Nick Moran and Rob Lundberg plan to bring similar mini-fests to other Madison neighborhoods during the summer. The Strollin’ series is made possible by a sponsorship from Monona State Bank, support from each of our other host venues, and a grant to the Jazz Consortium by the John and Carolyn Peterson Charitable Foundation. Best of all, these generous sponsors allow the Consortium to pay the musicians for their services.
