The Arts Center of Saint Peter’s Hot Jazz for Decent People series presents The EZ Jazz Trio on Friday, July 8, at Minnesota Square Park Pavilion. This is a free event.
Friday, July 8, 7:00-8:30 p.m., The EZ Jazz Trio
Together with Evan Bierer (saxophone), and Ryan Rader (percussion), band leader Eric Zimmerman delivers a high-energy evening of originals and standards (ezjazztrio.com
). The performance is dedicated to the memory of Bernard “Mike” Bidelman (1938-2022), a longtime St. Peter educator and a lover of fine arts. As a young man during the 1950s, Bidelman’s passion for jazz led him to travel by train from Elkhart, Indiana, to experience Chicago jazz clubs. His family has chosen the joyful occasion of a jazz show to honor his memory and give back to the St. Peter community where he lived and taught for more than 30 years.
All four Hot Jazz For Decent People shows — July 8, July 22, August 5, and August 19 — begin at 7:00 p.m. and concludes by 8:30 p.m. Admission is free, with donations to the Arts Center encouraged. Guests are encouraged to bring their own seating and refreshments. Coolers are permitted; no glass bottles. The St. Peter Public Library will host a free book giveaway at all shows.
The series is made possible by support from the State Arts and Cultural Heritage Fund, as appropriated by the Minnesota State Legislature to KMSU Radio.
