Jazz and Classics returns for Fall Music Festival

Virtual event requires registration.

Juneau Jazz and Classics has a new schedule and a new format, organizers of the annual festival announced.

This year’s festival will take place Oct. 1-3 in a virtual format, Juneau Jazz and Classics said in a news release. In addition to those changes, this will be the first festival to take place under the direction of Zuill Bailey, who was hired as artistic director last year. Previously, Bailey, who is a renowned cellist, performed in Juneau many times over the years.
