Developing Audiences

Jazz is America’s original art form and its influences run wide in the evolution of music as we know it today. With its many variations in style and form, there are countless opportunities to connect with potential audiences and create new generations of jazz musicians and enthusiasts.

Our purpose is to facilitate this discovery, as we support those who are doing the great work of introducing jazz to new audiences.
