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.

This 2020 electron microscope image made available by the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases shows a Novel Coronavirus SARS-CoV-2 particle isolated from a patient, in a laboratory in Fort Detrick, Md. Coronaviruses, including the newest one, are named for the spikes that cover their outer surface like a crown, or corona in Latin. Using those club-shaped spikes, the virus latches on to the outer wall of a human cell, invades it and replicates, creating viruses to hijack more cells. (NIAID / NIH)
