“Captivating … exhilarating,” Randal Harrison Hoecherl and his violin are what Jazz at the Trout is all about.

Guitarist Jack Grassel and singer Jill Jensen bring their musical love story to the Trout Museum of Art. There’s nothing sweeter!

Enjoy the warmth of the holiday season with the cool sounds of Steve March-Torme.

Individually, both are important Wisconsin jazz players; together, they make a jazz powerhouse.

Enjoy the golden sound of Tim Albright and his trombone.

This pairing of a true jazz vocalist and a soulful, hard-swinging pianist is a performance that just can’t be missed.

This is not “one-size-fits-all” jazz. This is Gaines & Wagoner.

Enjoy our season finale with this pair acclaimed and equally incredible jazz saxophonists. Plus a Jazz at the Trout Season 11 special announcement!
