Let’s Make Boston a Greater Jazz City

Join JazzBoston and be part of a community of people who recognize the power of jazz to bridge divides, tell stories, lift spirits, and give rhythm to our lives. Your membership will take us a step closer to making Boston the great jazz city we’d all like to live in – a city where every neighborhood has affordable venues for live jazz, every public school student has the opportunity to learn to play an instrument and to improvise, hometown jazz musicians can earn a living wage, and a lively jazz scene attracts innovators of all kinds.

A jazz rhythm is the rhythm of life. Langston Hughes
