Event Details

Grab a blanket, pull up a chair, and join us for some outstanding music at the Anderson Arts Center. Twilight Jazz is a free, summer concert series featuring regional jazz bands and legends in a beautiful outdoor setting on the shores of Lake Michigan.

About Janet Planet:
Described as a “sultry vocalist with a vast repertoire of jazz, blues, and standards…with some Bob Dylan thrown in for good measure” by New York Magazine, the spirited and vivacious, Janet Planet has been self-produced and managed for the majority of her 35-year career. Her determination and creative output continue to take her around the world through her recordings and live performances, including the U.S., Canada, Japan, Russia, South Africa, and Europe. Ms. Planet is a 6-time Wisconsin Area Music Industry (WAMI) award winner and in 2014 she became the second woman in 32 years to be inducted into the WAMI Hall of Fame. Learn more at

COVID-19 Precautions:
Socially distanced seating areas will be marked on the lawn, 6 feet apart. Seating will be first-come, first-served. We will have one entrance onto the lawn, off of Third Avenue. Guests will be greeted by a staff member and walked to one of the open spaces marked on the lawn. All of our staff and volunteers will be wearing masks, and we are encouraging guests to wear masks as well. Staff members will be sanitizing the restrooms and all touched surfaces, including the bar area, regularly throughout the night. Hand sanitizing stations will be available throughout the grounds. Concessions will have socially distanced lines with only one person handling payments.

For 16 years, the Twilight Jazz Summer Concert Series has established itself as one of Kenosha’s signature events, drawing crowds from throughout southern Wisconsin and Northern Illinois. Funds raised during the concert series support and sustain the Kemper Center, help to preserve the historic nature of the site and buildings, and help to promote the arts and art education in our community.

Every year, the Twilight Jazz Summer Concert Series would not be possible without the support of our local businesses, companies, and individuals who provide valuable funding assistance and volunteer hours so that we can make the concert series an incredible experience in Kenosha. Impactful contributions each year help us continue to provide quality arts programming, events, and exhibits for children and adults throughout the year.
