Funding for these programs comes primarily from members like you. Now in our 21st concert season, member donations provide the lion’s share of the annual budget, while corporate, foundation, and arts grants provide the balance of our funding needs. With that in mind, I encourage you to look over our exciting mix of jazz projects for 2019 and invest in making jazz accessible and affordable to all. You may order tickets and make donations on-line through the Jazz Project Store. Thank you for supporting live music and living musicians. Jud Sherwood, Jazz Project Director
