Now part of Jazz Appreciation Month
The long hiatus from indoor concerts has given Berkshires Jazz, Inc. an opportunity to reflect on the many aspects of our programming. As a result, we have re-scheduled the Pittsfield CityJazz Festival from mid-October to late April. Celebrated nationally as Jazz Appreciation Month (a 2001 initiative of the Smithsonian Institution, and recognized by Congress), “JAM” is the perfect opportunity to focus on America’s cultural gift to the world.
Berkshires Jazz is jumping back into ‘live’ programming with six events in the second half of 2021, including three in August. The most ambitious schedule in our 17-year history reflects the pent-up demand for in-person jazz events.
After our successful all-afternoon Berkshire Jazz Showcase in Pittsfield, we are spreading our jazz footprint across Berkshire County.
