“Well, this is this is the Brazos Valley Jazz Society’s first attempt at the Jazz Fest,” said Lieuwen. “We’re kind of bringing that back and you can expect a variety of music.”

There will be jazz performers from all walks of life including local and regional students and professional jazz musicians.

The event will also include a variety of ensembles and musical styles including the Bryan Christian School Jazz Band, Greg Tivis Jazz Band, and featured artists Kim Prevost and Bill Solley bringing their music to The Palace.

“And the palace is just newly renovated, and it’s supposed to be really nice,” said Lieuwen. “We’re all looking forward to it.”
