Support Jazz

in Spokane

Jazz is an important part of the thriving music scene in Spokane. Your donation helps underwrite the cost of operating the Spokane Jazz Orchestra and keeps our ticket prices affordable for wider access by all members of our community. 

 

In addition, donations help support middle and high school music students’ interest in and appreciation of jazz by providing them with complimentary tickets to our performances. We are currently working on a program to have our SJO musicians mentor and instruct deserving young musicians in our community. 

 

As the non-profit organization that administers and funds the SJO concerts and music education programs, the Spokane Jazz Society welcomes your donations to help us continue a tradition of amazing concerts for our community and support of our region’s young musicians. 

 

The Spokane Jazz Orchestra, founded in 1975, is the longest continuously performing community-supported jazz orchestra in the U.S. Let’s support this wonderful legacy and keep outstanding big band jazz music alive and thriving in our community.
