Thu., Oct. 17, 6 p.m., Fri., Oct. 18, 7 p.m. and Sat., Oct. 19, 12 p.m.
Kerrytown Concert House 415 N. Fourth Ave., Ann Arbor Kerrytown


Returning to push jazz to the limit is Edgefest — the four-day experimental avant jazz fest produced by Kerrytown Music House, which makes its return to Ann Arbor with a roster of artists carrying the torch for the improvisational and collaborative genre. The award-winning fest, which was founded in 1997, will once again host dozens of players and composer-performers from all over the country, as well as their ensembles, many of whom will be joined by Michigan area performers. This year will see performances that pay homage to West Coast-inspired music with performances by by Oluyemi Thomas’ Positive Knowledge, William Hooker Remembrance trio, Myra Melford Combo, Tad Weed Tribute, Cycle of Restoration, Andrew Bishop’s New and Used, Bobby Bradford and Vinny Golia Quartet, and others.

Humble and Human: Impressionist Era Treasures from the Albright-Knox Art Gallery and the Detroit Institute of Arts, an Exhibition in Honor of Ralph C. Wilson, Jr.

Tuesdays-Saturdays. Continues through Jan. 5
Detroit Institute of Arts 5200 Woodward Ave., Detroit Midtown


If you haven’t had a chance to behold the beauty of the Detroit Institute of Arts’ new Impressionist-era exhibition, there’s still time. The museum announced last week that it will now run through Sunday, Jan. 5, 2020. The show, which opened in June, was originally supposed to come down in October. The museum says it made the decision to keep it open due to near-record attendance: more than 100,000 people visited the exhibition in its first 13 weeks, and 200,000 are expected by the new closing date, which will make it the highest-attended exhibition at the DIA in nearly 20 years. The show features 44 works by Impressionist and Post-Impressionist painters like Paul Cézanne, Edgar Degas, Vincent van Gogh, Claude Monet, Berthe Morisot, Pierre-Auguste Renoir, and more. Many of the works on display had never been shown in Detroit. It honors the late art collector Ralph C. Wilson, Jr., the founder and owner of the NFL’s Buffalo Bills who lived in the Detroit area for much of his life. 313-833-7900

Isango Ensemble is a South African theater company that draws its artists from the townships surrounding Cape Town.
