Interview: Aimee Nolte, NMU Jazz Festival featured artist


Jazz pianist and singer Aimee Nolte is the featured artist at the 2018 NMU Jazz Festival. Over the course of only a couple of days, the featured artist works with the NMU Jazz Lab band on original tunes and jazz standards in preparation for the festival's closing concert Friday night. Nolte and Dr Mark Flaherty, the director of NMU's Jazz Studies, stopped by Public Radio 90 to talk about the festival, working with the students of the jazz lab band, and her love of jazz.

Nolte is also conducting clinics at 11am and 4pm in Jamrich 1100.

The NMU Jazz Festival closing concert is Friday,at 7:30pm at the Reynolds Recital Hall on campus.

Hans Ahlström is the host of several programs including the daily musical variety show Weekday, the mostly straight ahead jazz show Night Studio, the self explanatory Blues Today, and the eclectic Sound Spectrum. You can also hear Hans as the local host of NPR's All Things Considered news magazine. He also helps manage Public Radio 90's web content, interviews local and visiting writers and artists, works with NMU student interns, and writes the occasional news story.
