The Lionel Hampton Jazz Festival runs Feb. 24-26 at the University of Idaho in Moscow.


A world music celebration at 7 Feb. 24, a performance by Grammy-winner Dee Dee Bridgewater at 7 p.m. Feb. 25 and a show with the Chris Potter Trio at 7 p.m. Feb. 26 will be at the International Ballroom of the Bruce M. Pitman Center, instead of the ASUI-Kibbie Activity Center, according to a news release from the university.

“The Pitman Center offers an amazing venue conducive to

 the intimacy and atmosphere of this year’s extraordinary jazz performers,” festival manager Josh Skinner said. “The smaller venue won’t impact the top-notch acoustics our attendees have come to expect. Everyone is in for a real treat.”



Series and individual concert tickets can be purchased through the UI ticket office in the Kibbie Dome, by phone at (888) 885-6312 or at uidaho.edu/ticketoffice.

More information about individual events and locations can be found at uidaho.edu/class/jazzfest/events.
