Supporting Businesses

We’re proud to collaborate with businesses and other arts organizations in our region. These partners not only help us meet our goals, they deepen our roots in the communities where we work.

RS Berkeley Instruments has donated top-quality instruments for our student award winners and supplied us with fine rental instruments for our young players.

Montclair State University and Cali School of Music host our annual fundraiser “Inside the Jazz Note,” many of our student recitals, and our Summer Jazz Workshop.

Montclair Art Museum joins us at the Montclair Jazz Festival and other events to provide art workshops.

Montclair Public Library co-sponsors our Family Discovery Zone tent at the Montclair Jazz Festival.

New Jersey Performing Arts Center collaborates with us for jam sessions on International Jazz Day and has hosted our 10th and 15th Anniversary Galas.

WBGO, Newark and America’s favorite jazz station, promotes our events, sends its on-air hosts to emcee the Montclair Jazz Festival, and gave us our start! (link to melissa’s story)
