LIVING JAZZ NEEDS YOUR FINANCIAL HELP TO SURVIVE
Since 1984, Living Jazz has designed and launched a steady stream of successful programs that have helped shape the Bay Area's music scene, impacting the lives of over 3,500 people annually through music. In its 36 year run, Living Jazz has never faced a deficit - until COVID-19. Living Jazz quickly pivoted our offerings to be online as well as a reflection of ways we can best serve our community during these intense times.
This virus is impacting all of us. The way we work, the way our children learn and play, the way we communicate, and the way we connect as a community. Living Jazz has always been 100% committed to our mission of Transforming Lives Through Music. Our commitment has only strengthened as we recognize the profound need for the arts during this time of isolation and unease. However, we cannot fulfill our mission without your help.
COVID-19 is one of the biggest economic devastations in our lifetime.
