Jazz in June to Return to In-Person Shows with All-Nebraska Programming | Music
Jazz in June will return for its 30th anniversary season with a five-week lineup of Nebraska jazz and soul groups.
The free concert series, held in the sculpture garden west of the Sheldon Museum of Art, went live in 2020 by the coronavirus pandemic.
He will be returning for in-person performances with a June 1 show from the Nebraska Jazz Orchestra. The all-Nebraska lineup is a change for Jazz in June, which has traditionally featured internationally renowned jazz artists.
“In the past, we’ve had artists from all over the United States,” said Madeline Reddel, coordinator of Jazz in June. “This year, due to the budget and wanting to support local artists right now, we have chosen the best local artists.”
The shows on the five Tuesdays in June will begin at 7 p.m., with the bands playing two 45-minute sets with a 15-minute break.

For now, the concerts will be conducted under COVID-19 security restrictions at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. The city’s run health measure, including the mask requirement, expires Thursday.
“We are suggesting, and are demanding for now, social distancing,” Reddel said. “It could change. But we ask families to sit in capsules. We will have masks available, hand sanitizer. “
While the shows are free and seats are allocated on a first-come, first-served basis, there is a small, reserved seating area near the stage on the Sheldon back patio. Tickets for the reserved seating area cost $ 20 and will be available later this week at liedcenter.org and by phone at 402-472-4747.
