Jazz Philadelphia leverages the city’s rich jazz legacy and vibrant musical assets to build a strong, cohesive, forward-looking community. We connect the people and musicians in our region who create, support, and present jazz to build a healthy, sustainable jazz community that is recognized around the world. We plan to achieve our goals in a distinctly “Philadelphia” way—with a diverse coalition marked by passion, grit, collaboration, authenticity, and creativity.
