Plans for Jazz & Beyond 2024 are being worked on. The planning committee met on January 19, 2024, and decided that the festival will start on August 16 and end on August 25. That will give us two weekends and the days in between to present some great music to the citizens of Carson City and surrounding areas. The next planning meeting is March 15, 2024, at 11:30 a.m. at Wungenema House.

We will to be back with a great 21st season!
