• Museum Closed until April 1st – Check website for live-streaming details

    Dear National Jazz Museum in Harlem Supporters, Friends, Volunteers, Members and Community,

     

    COVID-19 is an unprecedented situation and the source of great anxiety in our city and, indeed, across the globe. As a result, and in consultation with our Board of Trustees, the National Jazz Museum in Harlem has decided, in the interest of our entire community, starting tomorrow, Saturday, March 14, the Museum will be closed to the public. This will continue until March 31, at which time we will re‑evaluate.

     

    HOWEVER! We will continue to offer programming via livestream.

     

    Even in the midst of this uncertainty, we remain committed to supporting artists and providing the very highest quality programming. As is our tradition, we provide this free-of-charge.

     

    We have also decided to move our annual benefit concert to a livestreamed virtual Gala to be held on May 20. Watch our website and your inbox for details including featured artists, honorees and sponsorship opportunities. We encourage you to consider watching with friends from home. Should circumstances permit, perhaps join a virtual or in-person “watch party.”

     

    The National Jazz Museum in Harlem is deeply grateful for your attendance at our events, your support of our work and our mission, and your commitment to art. This sustains us, as we hope we help to sustain you.

    Remember to reach out to your community of loved ones, friends and colleagues during these interesting times. Share our programminglink with them. Connect, check-in and take care of each other.

     

    As this situation evolves, we will communicate updates via eblast and on our website.

     

    We wish you health and safety,

     

    Sincerely,

     

    Tracy Hyter-Suffern

    Executive Director
