About Suzanne Grzanna:
A brilliant saxophonist, sultry jazz singer, and Grammy Award voting member, Suzanne Grzanna is a world-class artist who has traveled the world during her productive career. The recent release of her CD “Daybreak” and her single “Spring Waltz” is just the latest accomplishment in a career full of high points. Suzanne was born and grew up in a small suburb of Milwaukee. Her parents Don and Maureen Grzanna are professional musicians and she started piano lessons with her mother when she was five, moving on to clarinet and alto-sax as a young girl. After attending Wisconsin Lutheran College and earning a music degree from Carroll University, she formed her jazz quartet. Suzanne immediately started a busy performance schedule and began to record in 1994, starting with “The Cat’s Meow.” She has recorded six CDs and two singles thus far. Suzanne has an upcoming role in the new film “Western Conviction” that will film in 2021. Her new jazz album will also be released in 2021.Learn more at https://saxdiva.com/.

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.
