The Bellingham Youth Jazz Band started its 23rd year on Wednesday, October 5th @ 7pm at the Bellingham First Baptist Church, 110 Flora Street. Concerts  continue December 4 at the Port Festival at the Cruise Terminal, 12-12:50.  Interested middle/high school musicians on sax, trumpet, trombone, guitar, piano, bass (upright/electric) drum set or vocals that are currently enrolled in their school’s music programs and/or taking weekly private lessons are eligible if they have one year minimum experience on their instrument. Due to the vulnerability of those we serve, full COVID-19 vaccinations will be required of all participants in the band. Weekly Wednesday rehearsals and 20+ performances run through next Spring. Call 360-676-5750 for pre-registration (so there will be music waiting for you), or email:

Funding for these programs comes primarily from members like you. Now in our 24th 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 support the arts in general and The Jazz Project specifically.  Thank you for supporting live music and living musicians. Jud Sherwood, Jazz Project Director
