Jazz Week – A Musical Rite of Spring in its 12th year
Jazz Week ’18, which runs from April 20 through April 30, is the 12th edition of the Greater Boston jazz community’s annual celebration of the music, the musicians who make it, and the venues that present it all across the region. JazzBoston provides the catalyst and framework for this collaborative effort and promotes all events under the Jazz Week umbrella. We also organize special events that expand access to the music by bringing it to the neighborhoods where people live and lowering the price barrier.
As always, Jazz Week is scheduled to tie into the national observance of April as Jazz Appreciation Month and, since 2012, International Jazz Day on April 30.
