Tuesday Night Boundary Bay Jazz Jam:
Hosted by The Jazz Project
Join the Jennifer Scott Trio for Boundary Bay's jazz jam session, 8:30-11:30 on the first Tuesday of every month in the taproom. The trio plays the first set then opens up the second and third sets for other players to sit in.
Underwriting projects and program services include the Bellingham Youth Jazz Band, the Medical Fund, the Scholarship Lesson Fund and the Piano Liberation Organization which has placed 117 pianos and is looking forward to receiving piano and instrument donations to pass on to children and families in need.
Funding for these programs comes primarily from members like you. For the past fourteen concert seasons member donations have provided 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 2013 and invest in making jazz accessible and affordable to all. You may order tickets and make donations on-line through the Jazz Project Store link.
Thank you for supporting live music and living musicians.
