Our Mission

Home/About/Our Mission

It’s about the music and more

JazzBoston delivers the music and the message of jazz throughout Greater Boston and beyond:

  • to audiences of all ages and incomes
  • in the neighborhoods where people live
  • at the forums where decisions are made

Our programs address cultural, social, and economic goals:

  • increase awareness of jazz music as an essential part of our cultural heritage and daily life
  • use the power of jazz to bridge divides, foster creativity, and improve lives
  • build Boston’s reputation as a great jazz city – a magnet for cultural tourists and innovators from near and far

We are looked to for leadership:

  • over a decade representing Greater Boston’s diverse jazz community of musicians, audiences, venues, and others engaged in the art, education, or business of jazz
  • a network that extends across the region’s jazz community and into the broader arts community
  • a reputation for getting things done
