Our involvement with the community extends beyond the popular concerts that we present. One of the key elements of the Pittsfield CityJazz Festival are Jazz in the Schools, which last year sent the Pittsfield Sister City Jazz Ambassadors to Lee Middle and High Schools, Kittredge Elementary School (Hinsdale), Becket/Washington Elementary School (Becket), Greylock Elementary School (North Adams), Sullivan Elementary School (North Adams), Mt. Greylock Regional High School (Williamstown), Brayton Elementary School (North Adams) where they gave lessons on jazz history and the fundamentals of jazz music.
