Offstage is a chance to engage the outstanding guest artists you saw in the Southern Theatre in a fun, casual, and open environment. You, the audience, will be led in a captivating discussion with our guest artists about their music, inspirations, and life off the stage.
Join us at the Jazz Academy or on Facebook @TheJazzAcademy. We encourage you to bring your own questions and be prepared to learn about the life of a jazz musician. Admission to all Offstage events is free.
