NMU Friends of Jazz is a Northern Michigan University student organization that is dedicated to fostering a greater understanding and appreciation of jazz among NMU students, and in the Marquette community. To achieve this goal, Friends of Jazz sponsors a variety of events on the NMU campus every year, including lectures, concerts, masterclasses, and jam sessions. The NMU Jazz Festival is by far the largest event that is sponsored by Friends of Jazz on a yearly basis.
