The Jazz Project – Northwest Jazz 2021


After a successful end to the video sharing series, The Jazz Project is now looking forward to summer programming which may include resuming the Out of the Ashes Music Therapy program at Boundary Bay beginning in July as well as resuming the Bellhaven Jazz Festival in late August or early September.

Now that we are in phase three of re-opening protocols, keep an eye on this website for updates about virtual and remote concerts.  These will be posted on the gigs page and the events calendar.   Hopefully by Summer, we will resume some outdoor events and be back to normal programming by Fall.   

The Jazz Project has secured several grants through the CARES Act from 2020 and Whatcom ReStart so that when the time comes to return to producing shows, our financial situation will be sound.   Online donations can be made on this website and will prepare us for our eventual return to programs.

The Bellingham Youth Jazz Band has been canceled until at least FALL 2021!


Underwriting projects and program services include:

Funding for these programs comes primarily from members like you. Now in our 23rd 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
