Like most performing arts organizations, the Boise Jazz Society had to cut its season short in 2020 because of the pandemic. Boise State Professor Emeritus Michael Samball, executive director of the society, is announcing the good news that the group is “back in business” with a summer concert and a full season ahead.

Allison Miller and her sextet, Boom Tic Boom, performs in the Riverside Hotel’s
Sapphire Room Aug. 16-17 with concerts at 5 p.m. and 8 p.m.

The society’s 2021-22 season begins Sept. 26-27 with Cuban clarinetist/saxophonist Paquito D’Rivera and his quintet. Other concerts include Diane Reeves, Wynton Marsalis, and the Lincoln Center Jazz Orchestra.

The Boise Jazz Society is a Boise State community-engagement partnership supporting jazz performance, jazz education, and the promotion of jazz as a living, American art form.
