Juneau Jazz and Classical Fest to Be Held in May

Renowned for its lush green mountains, icy blue waterways and more, Juneau will provide the backdrop for its 20th annual musical celebration, the Juneau Jazz & Classics Festival. One of Alaska’s most highly anticipated musical events will return May 19-27, 2006. Over 15 concerts will be held in the capital city’s scenic churches, cruise boats, auditoriums, the Mendenhall Glacier and other venues. The festival will showcase more than twenty-five musicians performing jazz, blues, gospel and classical, including the Campbell Brothers and the Paul deLay Band with special guest Duffy Bishop, along with classical artists Philippe Djokic, Annaliesa Place, Linda Rosenthal, Evan Drachman and Laura Klugherz.

The Juneau Jazz & Classics Festival was formed to provide a rich musical experience to the isolated communities of Southeast Alaska that have few opportunities to experience high quality music performed by professional artists.
