Michigan has a rich heritage in the jazz art form and the grassroots beginnings of jazz creates broad appeal, representing the ability of the arts to help people express themselves, find meaning in their lives, and ultimately impact the lives of others. As a performing organization, Michigan Jazz Trail offers the Great Lakes Bay region the chance to experience jazz through performances and school clinics. We bring high quality jazz education and performance to communities throughout the region, creating hubs of activity, places filled with enrichment, education, and entertainment. We are engaging community leaders and arts enthusiasts in a collaborative economic development effort, presenting the jazz art form to a diverse audience that cuts across age, economic, and cultural demographics. Since 2012, the Michigan Jazz Trail has expanded its focus on performances and education to include the entire Great Lakes Bay region, including festival (multi-day) and concert (single performance) venues in Midland, Bay City, Saginaw, Charlevoix, and Tawas. With a variety of year round festivals and individual concerts across the region, the Michigan Jazz Trail offers mid-Michigan communities easy access to both local and national artists. In addition, some venues offer jam sessions and jazz clinics at the local high schools providing students with an opportunity to “learn from the pros.”
