Our Mission and Programs

Jazz Forum Arts is a 501©3, not-for-profit arts presenting organization whose mission is to present top-quality events to the public at little or no cost, while enhancing the appreciation of Jazz, America’s preeminent indigenous musical art form.

Affordable Live Music

The Jazz Forum is the only dedicated jazz club in Westchester County. Our commitment is to keep the music affordable and accessible.

Free Summer Concerts

In 2019 we will celebrate 33 years of outdoor concerts in public parks in NYC, Westchester and Connecticut for live music fans and new audiences.
