For five weekends from October through March, world-class jazz comes to the OXFORD hotel’s intimate jazz ballroom located in the heart of downtown Bend.
The series’ executive producer is Patrick Lamb Productions, a name well known in the jazz community.
“This season is going to be phenomenal! We cannot wait to welcome these artists to the Bend community,” said Ben Perle, Oxford Corporate’s regional vice president of operations. “Each year we refine and improve our series in an effort to provide an optimal experience for our attendees, our artists, our sponsors and our team. We are truly grateful for the community’s support of the series, and we are excited to kick off our 7th year.”
