Quality Live Jazz performance in southeastern Minnesota can be hard to find. Make time to travel to Harmony, Minn., Friday night May 2 to experience the Daniel Leahy Jazz Sextet in Concert at Wheelers Bar and Grill, just off Hwy. 52 starting at 7 p.m. Admission will be $10 at the door.

The Daniel Leahy Jazz Sextet from Illinois will be spending a number of days working with the music students of the Fillmore Central School. The Friday night concert offers the opportunity for the general public to hear these very talented professionals!

The concert performance will highlight a variety of instrumental and vocal selections from the 30s and 40s, as well as recent contemporary Swing, Bebop, and Latin rhythms. The running time of the concerts is expected to last between sixty and ninety minutes. So be on time to not miss a moment!

The Annual Big Band Bash artist residency and concerts are made possible in the Fillmore Central Schools through the combined generosity of local business and area arts organizations sponsorships. This 8th Annual Big Band Bash has been financed by Harmony Enterprises Inc., First Southeast Bank of Harmony, Southeastern Minnesota Arts Council’s Legacy Funding, the City of Harmony Arts Board, the Preston Arts Council as well as the Fillmore Central Schools Music Department.

A Saturday evening Big Band Bash Dinner Concert by both students and the visiting artists is nearly sold out. Tickets for this event are $20. Contact the Fillmore Central High School Office for ticket availability.
