Our acoustically designed room in the heart of Denver plays host to live jazz nightly (Tuesday through Sunday). Check the calendar below for set times as they may vary. Nocturne’s distinctive Artist in Residency programming is at the core of our line up. Most artists who perform at Nocturne engage in a four to eight week run that focuses on the exploration of a musical icon, the study of a jazz genre, or the exhibition of an Artist's own original work. This old-school approach to programming combines the unique opportunity to hone one’s craft with regular stage time, while also establishing an elevated rapport with Denver music fans. Nocturne is proud to be the only venue in Colorado that features jazz exclusively, and we are also pleased to feature national touring artists on special occasions.
At this time, our live music performances are available by reservation only. By reserving your seat for dinner and a show you can enjoy the live music along with a three course menu by our talented culinary team. You can make a reservation on-line or via phone @ 303.295.3333.
In addition to dining on site, we recognize that some members of our community are unable to join us in person this summer. As such, we'll be live streaming several of our performances for you to enjoy from the comfort and safety of your home. Follow us at https://www.facebook.com/nocturnejazz/ for live streams and recordings of our past performances.
Supporting the musicians practicing their craft on our stage is important to us - your prepaid dinner reservation includes the artist fees that support fair pay to our music community. You can support in other ways such as purchasing music online, physical CD's or sending Venmo tips to your favorite artists. The music community is strong but still working to rebound from a lot of cancelled gigs during the COVID-19 pandemic. Your support of their craft will keep this art form alive.
Kathryn Radakovich studied classical voice and flute at the University of Idaho during her secondary education and then went on to pursue her Bachelor of Music in Vocal Performance and Bachelor of Arts in Music Theory and Music History. Her studies led her to Southern California where she obtained her Master of Music in Vocal Performance from CSU Fullerton in 2011. An established regular in the Denver jazz scene, Kathryn has performed at Nocturne, Dazzle, and La Cour with colleagues such as Annie Booth, Art Lande, John Gunther, John Stenger, Dru Heller, Amanda Williams, and more. Recent performance highlights include joining Maria Schneider and the CU Big Band for their performance of Schneider’s “Cerulean” as part of the Front Range Jazz Festival, and singing the world premiere of Annie Booth’s “Flowers of Evil” at the Dairy Arts Center. Also an active classical musician, Kathryn frequently solos with the leading classical ensembles: Colorado Bach Ensemble, St. Martin’s Chamber Choir, and Baroque Chamber Orchestra of Colorado. When not performing, Ms. Radakovich teaches jazz voice at Metropolitan State University Denver as well as leading the Early Music Ensemble.
Kathryn, (a Nocturne residency alumni), is joined by Gonzalo Teppa, Tom Amend, and Ryan Hayden as they explore songs and sounds in the jazz idiom that evoke sentiments of summer: timelessness, frivolity, summer love, samba, and more.
