The concerts are part of the Collins Center for the Arts Jazz Series, created to bring internationally acclaimed musicians and experienced educators to the university campuses in Orono and Machias. Since its first concert in 2019, the Jazz Series has expanded to include performances at UMaine Machias and workshops for university and high school students in the Machias area. The series receives grant funding from UMaine’s Alton ’38 and Adelaide Hamm Campus Activity Fund, and the Cultural Affairs/Distinguished Lecture Series.
