The three component programs of the Capital Jazz Society – the Monday Night Big Band, the Lincoln Jazz Series, and the First Monday Jazz Jam – provide a regular series of live music, featuring outstanding local, regional, and nationally recognized jazz groups and artists, including local high school and college groups. Students and community members are encouraged to participate by sitting in with the groups performing, demonstrating the invaluable experience of learning side-by-side professional local musicians.
