Join us for the first year of our Jazz on the River series in Wausau's beautiful downtown River District! Sunday evening concerts begin July 9th through August 27th for a total of eight concerts in this dynamic jazz series! Concerts are held at the Library Plaza from 5pm - 7pm with a rain location downtown in the Wausau Center Mall in front of the old Sears store (easy parking is available in the north Sears ramp at the corner of Forest and 5th Streets).
Our August 6th concert features Denise Sauter and her band. Denise surrounds herself with the finest jazz musicians in the state for a wonderful and eclectic mix of vocal and instrumental jazz. Denise and her band pour their hearts into music from 40’s jazz standards to the contemporary sounds of Norah Jones and Sting, blended in with a dash of funky rhythm and blues. Denise has been performing and entertaining audiences for over a decade and released her first CD, Just One of Those Things in 2013.
The Library Plaza is located behind Marathon County Public Library, downtown Wausau. Parking is available at and near this picturesque venue. Lawn chairs and picnic dinners are encouraged and welcomed!
