After a winter hiatus, the Blowing Rock Jazz Society is returning for the 2013 season.

The BRJS will present seven monthly concerts at the Meadowbrook Inn from April through September.

The first concert in the BRJS “Second Sunday” concert series will feature Appalachian State University’s Jazz Ensemble I, directed by saxophonist and jazz instructor Todd Wright.

The concert takes place from 7 to 9 p.m. on Sunday, April 14, at the Meadowbrook Inn in Blowing Rock. Tickets are $20 for the general public and $5 for students.

Annual membership into the Blowing Rock Jazz Society, including admission to all seven concerts, is $75 for the general public and $25 for students.

Membership dues can be mailed to Blowing Rock Jazz Society, P.O. Box 2470, Blowing Rock, N.C. 28605.

Money raised from the BRJS Second Sunday concert series goes toward supporting the ASU Jazz Studies program. Thus far, the BRJS has donated more than $16,000 to the program.

The BRJS also presents live jazz concerts at area schools, in conjunction with the Watauga Cultural Council.

The 2013 BRJS Second Sunday concert lineup includes the ASU Jazz Ensemble I (April 14), Dave Morgan (May 12), the ASU Jazz Faculty Quintet (June 9), Larry Lapin with Michelle Amato (July 14), the Noel Friedline Quintet (Aug. 11), and The Page Brother Band (Oct. 13). The jazz artist performing on Sept. 8 has yet to be determined.
