The Seacoast Jazz Society was formed in 1990 with an objective of supporting jazz on the New England Seacoast, roughly from Newburyport, Massachusetts, to Portland, Maine. Our mission is to foster an appreciation for the jazz tradition, support young artists through jazz education, and engage jazz musicians with our community in performances and events.
To further these aims the SJS organizes regular jazz listening and discussion opportunities, presents an annual lecture series, sends a regular email newsletter of jazz listings and articles, supports guest artists at local jazz venues, funds an annual scholarship to benefit a young student of jazz, and partners with other jazz organizations.
The activities of the Seacoast Jazz Society are initiated and managed by its Board of Directors, which meets monthly. The Executive Board also enjoys the benefits of its Advisory Board, whose members are kept informed of Board activities and whose observations and suggestions are always welcome.
The Seacoast Jazz Society is registered with the State of New Hampshire as a Charitable Trust, and has nonprofit, tax deductible 501(c)(3) status. All contributions
are tax deductible and greatly appreciated.
