The Nash preserves the cultural treasure of American music history, showcases live performance and ensures the future of the iconic art of jazz for generations to come. Educational and performance programs at The Nash include: classic jazz and new music; performances by student musicians, local pros and touring artists; weekly jazz jam sessions; workshops; master classes; and clinics. Educational programs will be offered ranging from one-on-one private lessons to combo labs, guided listening, jazz in film, jazz camps and more.

The Nash serves our entire community based on the conviction that jazz is for everyone: children, adults, seniors and families; musicians and non-musicians; privileged and under-served youth. The Nash operates in collaboration with schools and other arts and culture organizations in our neighborhood, across the Valley, and throughout America.

The Nash will flourish through the generosity of individual Jazz Angels, businesses, corporations and foundations that value arts in our community, and the unique ability of jazz to promote individuality, creativity, harmony and joy in all aspects of our lives.
