2018 Dune Climb Concert: Jazz North
July 8 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
Jazz North is a “little” big band comprising the best of acoustic and electric jams of all genre. The horn section gels with the rhythm section to perform everything from funk to swing to rhythm and blues, from Latin to bebop, and R&B and rock. Throw in plenty of fresh original arrangements of jazz and funk standards, and you’ve got a mix that’s delightful for listening and dancing.
Imagine a beautiful summer’s evening at the foot of the Dune Climb in the Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore, hundreds of families enjoying their pre-concert picnics and then a musical program provided by artists of national stature: this is the magical mixture which has filled audiences with warm memories every year since the first Dune Climb concert in 1998. The setting is magnificent and the music is even better. The concert at the Dune Climb is presented annually by the Glen Arbor Arts Center and is free to the public. Because of the unique venue and incomparable music it routinely draws a large audience.
There is no charge for the 7:00 p.m. concert; however, a National Park pass is required for parking. Free shuttle buses will provide transportation to overflow parking lots. Bring chairs or blankets to sit on. Some folding chairs are also provided in front of the stage.
