Jazz lovers have several opportunities next month to get their fill of the genre when the Big Time Jazz Orchestra offers two spring performances.

From 8-9 p.m. May 6, the Big Time Jazz Orchestra performs at the West Duluth Jazz Festival at Mr. D's Bar & Grill. The festival runs from 2-11 p.m. and features a variety of jazz groups. There is a cover charge for the day's events.

On May 10, the orchestra teams up with the University of Wisconsin-Superior Jazz Ensemble to raise funds for the UWS jazz scholarship. The concert begins at 7:30 p.m. at the UWS' Rothwell Student Center. The cost ranges from $5 to $8.

Additionally, band members play two other events as the Randy Lee Jazz Orchestra, starting with a benefit concert May 19 for the Northland Youth Music Program's summer music camps at the Richard I. Bong World War II Heritage Center in Superior.
