This coming Monday, November 7, 2022, Middleton Jazz will be playing in the Stoughton Opera House at 3:00 p.m. as part of the Stoughton Senior Center’s Music Appreciation Series. The performance is free and open to the public, although they will ask for free-will donations.
There should be plenty of room to spread out. It is a beautiful venue with lively acoustics that should add to the performance.
We are thrilled to once again be part of the Strollin’ Middleton Jazz Festival, which this year will include the Grand Opening of the Stone Horse Green. Come hear us in the Middleton Senior Center at 5 p.m. on October 7th, and at the Grand Opening of the Stone Horse Green at 10 a.m. on October 8th!
Middleton Jazz had a great time helping the residents of The Jefferson celebrate Mardi Gras this Tuesday! Since we would be missing several members on Thursday, we decided to skip rehearsal this week, but will be back at the Middleton Senior Center on March 10.
Just like the pandemic itself, Middleton Jazz had a roller coaster year! We started 2021 remotely, with a few Zoom meetings and two virtual performances (What A Wonderful World, Topsy) to keep our musical spirits alive. When the weather warmed up, we moved outside to rehearse in Bill Scott’s driveway. Then when vaccines became widely available and the case counts went down, we were able to return to the Middleton Senior Center in June.
We played a few outdoor gigs over the summer, including Stone Horse Green on August 5th, Lakeview Park on August 25th, and Tamarack Trails on September 8th.
With the fourth wave of COVID-19 brought on by the delta variant, we had to move rehearsals back outside in August.
Then in October, under new guidance by Public Health Madison & Dane County, we were allowed back into the Middleton Senior Center with masks, bell covers, and social distancing. All of us are vaccinated and boosted.
Fortunately, our precautions worked, and everyone stayed clear of the virus in 2021. We are hoping for a better year in 2022.
Middleton Jazz will be performing outdoors in downtown Middleton this Thursday, August 5th, from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m. There will be lots of activities, so come on down for some summer fun! (By the way, we will not rehearse this Thursday morning to save our chops!)
