If you are heading to the MONA any weekend, you might want to make time to see one of the many Jazz performers who will be performing.
Jazz at MONA is a new regular event that features the best in local and international musicians who are ready to wow audiences. It is also the perfect way to cap off a relaxing weekend away or to start the coming week on a high note.
And while the performances can vary in taste and style, resident MOFO curator Brian Ritchie and musician/jammer is hoping that people of all ages and musical backgrounds will be inspired to learn more about the rich history of Jazz after attending one of its jamming sessions.
Performances will be held outdoors on the lawn stage – it is easily found opposite the main Ether Building … or as locals say, just past the rabbits toward the pavillions. Kids take note.
Inclement weather changes the seating and stage plan a little in that the show is moved to The Void – an intimate setting with a reputation for ‘beyond stellar’ acoustics.
However, the atmosphere around a stormy afternoon (and a nice glass of something of your choosing) can on occasion provide the perfect backdrop to a moody piece that is sure to stir your emotions.
