Joan Belgrave Quartet

Fri., Oct. 18, 7 & 9:30 p.m.


Joan Belgrave was pretty much born to do this. The soulful jazz vocalist from Detroit began her music career at just 3 years old, soon receiving vocal training from University of Michigan professor Dr. Willis Patterson. Her career was taken to the next level when she started collaborating with her husband, the late jazz trumpeter Marcus Belgrave, who she made five records with. On Friday, she’ll be joined by pianist Zen Zadravec, bassist Ibrahim Jones, and drummer Brandon Williams for two sets at Ann Arbor’s new Blue LLama Jazz Club.

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.

Isango Ensemble: The Magic Flute

Sat., Oct. 19, 8 p.m.

Buy TicketsStarting at $30 (+ fees) $12-20 studen


Isango Ensemble is a South African theater company that draws its artists from the townships surrounding Cape Town. The company reimagines classics from the Western theater canon while finding new context for the stories within a South African township setting, thereby creating inventive work relevant to the heritage of the nation and a “joyful fusion of two cultures.” (Boston Globe) For their UMS debut, they present three performances of The Magic Flute, which features Mozart’s score transcribed for an orchestra of marimbas.
