The Madison Jazz Society opens its 2016 spring concert series on Sunday, Jan. 31 from 1-4 p.m. at the Coliseum Bar, 232 E Olin Ave., Madison.

The concert will feature jazz bands from southern Wisconsin high schools.

MJS President Linda Marty Schmitz said, “This is a semi-annual event. It provides the opportunity to see how grants awarded by the society’s School Grant Fund benefit students. We are sure that the audience will be blown away by the talent exhibited by these

young people who are the future of jazz. Their talents are extensive and it is our honor to present them on the MJS stage.”

Three high school bands will perform: Beloit Memorial , Sun Prairie, and Verona. All proceeds will go to the music departments of the schools.

The concert will provide the students an opportunity to perform for an audience comprised of people other than parents and peers.

Tickets for the concert are $10 per person and those age 18 and younger are admitted free. Doors open at noon.
