SITKA— The 22nd Sitka Jazz Festival will be Feb. 2-4, 2017. It will consist of an array of artists, starring the Tierny Sutton Band, saxophonist Bob Reynolds, guitarist Mamie Fox and many more. In addition to evening concerts Thursday, Friday and Saturday evenings, a free community lunch concert will be held Friday, as well as educational workshops Saturday. An all-festival pass to all concerts and workshops is $40.

The Sitka Jazz Festival “works to bring professional jazz musicians from around the world to the island community of Sitka... to teach, inspire and perform,” according to the festival’s website. It “strives to teach music appreciation, skills, history, artistic expression, and cross-cultural undestanding through jazz.”

Students from around Alaska will also be performing, “with an emphasis on cooperation and appreciation.”
