 What is A Place for Jazz?

A Place for Jazz isn't really a place; it's a 501(c)(3) non-profit, all-volunteerButch Conn organization dedicated to presenting the best in Jazz. It was founded by Butch Conn in 1987. Programs include concerts, public workshops, school-based clinics, a Jazz website and general support of Jazz and its musicians. Our concerts are held in the Great Hall, the beautiful listening-space in the Unitarian Universalist Society of Schenectady at 1221 Wendell Ave in Schenectady. (Click here for directions.)


A Place for Jazz is made possible with public funds from the New York State Council on the Arts, celebrating 50 years of building strong, creative communities in New York States 62 counties. Also funded in part by grants from National Grid, Schenectady County Initiative Program,  the William Gundry Broughton Charitable Private Foundation, Inc. and in-kind donations from the Price Chopper Golub Foundation.

In addition to grant funding, revenue is generated through ticket sales and membership contributions.

We welcome your participation as a volunteer and/or as a member. For further information about APFJ, email Tim Coakley (our leader), call him at 518-393-4011 or write to PO Box 1059, Schenectady, NY 12301.
