STREAMING JAZZ AROUND THE WORLD
As part of Jazz at Lincoln Center’s mission “to entertain, enrich and expand a global community for jazz through performance, education and advocacy,” we utilize streaming video, coupled with social media, to expand audiences for jazz and for the organization. We stream hundreds of concerts each year in HD video, with a high quality studio audio mix, at no cost to viewers. Please tune in … and enjoy!
Investing in a professional, multi-cam setup for each of our three stages as well as dedicated audio mixing engineers and staff positions dedicated to managing livestreams, we began to share the majority of our concerts online, completely free, and in real-time. In 2016, when Facebook opened its Live platform to more third-party partners, we began simultaneously broadcasting via Facebook Live, bringing our music to even wider audiences.
To date, Jazz at Lincoln Center has broadcast more than 1,000 concerts across the globe and reached virtually every country on Earth, an unprecedented success and a first for a major performing arts organization. Facebook Live has helped us get closer to our mission-based goal of sharing jazz with the world. Every Live video is filled with comments like "Thank you from Argentina" and "Watching from the UAE" and "Enjoying this from Portugal! Thank you."
