PipJazz LIVE gives talented young artists the opportunity to gain real-life performance experience with world-class musicians in a family-friendly environment. The concerts are held once a month on a Saturday evening at a premier community theater, giving parents, students and the community at large a convenient opportunity to hear Twin Cities music at its best live.
