What It Means

Here at Jazz at Lincoln Center, we're entertaining, enriching, and expanding a global community for jazz through performance, education, and advocacy. Our programs bring people together through a common love of America’s homegrown art form: jazz. But we can’t do it alone.

Your support for this music matters. Last year, over 87,000 students across the country and around the world experienced the joy of this music through our Jazz for Young People on Tour concerts, our Middle School Jazz Academy and Summer Jazz Academy, and our Essentially Ellington programs. And faraway fans viewed our free live webcasts over 4.5 million times.

Help us reach even more people with the joy of jazz.
