Join us at Tandem Press for our 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 2019-2020 series includes three concerts during the fall season and three in the spring.

Enjoy some great jazz music, learn about Tandem Press and fine art printmaking, and see the current exhibition hanging in the Tandem Press Apex Gallery. All concerts in this series are free and open to the public. Ample free parking is available.
