About this event
Description: 
Jazz in June has become more than just a tradition in Lincoln. It’s a summer standard. Organized by The University of Nebraska–Lincoln with the help of many generous sponsors, the free Tuesday evening series is one of Lincoln’s sublime summer delights. Enjoy the Jazz in June Market, starting at 5 p.m. at 12th & R Streets, and then stroll onto the University of Nebraska–Lincoln campus to listen to great jazz, beginning at 7 p.m. From his beginnings as one of Chicago’s most thrilling young trumpeters, to his current status as an internationally renowned musician, composer and bandleader, Marquis Hill has worked tirelessly to break down the barriers that divide musical genres. Contemporary and classic jazz, hip-hop, R&B, Chicago house, neo-soul—to Hill, they’re all essential elements of the profound African-American creative heritage he’s a part of. “It all comes from the same tree,” he says. “They simply blossomed from different branches.”
