As you’ll see at www.jazzinmadison.org/strollin, the performance schedule enables you to stroll from venue to venue and catch a variety of performances while patronizing the local businesses that are hosting the music. And as always with the Strollin' series, there's no cover charge at any of the venues.
“Strollin’ Schenk’s Corners” is made possible by sponsorships from Monona State Bank and Prime Urban Properties, support from each of the host venues, and a grant to the Jazz Consortium by the John and Carolyn Peterson Charitable Foundation, as well as promotional support from Isthmus and WORT-FM.
