TO CONNECT AND TO HEAL THROUGH MUSIC IN OUR CHANGING WORLD

Jazz and Classics for Change (“JCfC”) was established in the summer of 2019 with the mission, “To connect and to heal through music in our changing world.”

It has remained dedicated to its mission of bringing the highest quality music to its ever-growing and diverse audiences in Columbia and Berkshire Counties. The programs we have offered, performed by world-class jazz and classical musicians, have fostered a community that values music as an essential and vital expression of the human experience. 

Now in our sixth season, we are excited to continue to create, expand, and provide new programming for people from all walks of life. In addition to our public concerts we perform for those who can’t come to us so they too can experience the healing power of music. Those include concerts for young adults and adults with special abilities, residents of assisted-living facilities, and children of incarcerated parents.

Thank you, our audience members, for your unwavering support as we strive to build connections through music that enrich, inspire and honor the lives of all people.
