The APFJ Concert Series The Jazz Calendar           


To A Place for Jazz Members, Supporters, Friends, and Artists -

It is with deep regret that we announce the cancellation of our Fall 2021 concert season. This action has become necessary due to increasing concerns and uncertainties about the resurgence of the COVID virus and its variants. Your health and well-being are of prime concern for us and we appreciate the necessity of safety precautions required as a public health matter. However, requirements for protective masking, contact tracing, social distancing, vaccinations, limited audience, and restricted artist movement make it untenable for us to present the concert series this fall.

A Place for Jazz is known throughout the community for our high quality of concerts, valued clinics and education, financial scholarships for students pursuing music education, and opportunities for local school-age musicians to experience the joy of performing jazz. We look forward presenting another season of our exceptional concerts as soon as it is possible, in a safe and responsible manner.

We will make sure to keep you informed of those developments via this website and other social media platforms. In the meantime, we humbly ask that you continue to be vigilant in supporting this music, its artists, and institutions. We plan on continuing our financial scholarship program and appreciate your donations supporting all our efforts.

Membership: If you had already purchased an APFJ Fall 2021 season membership, you may request a refund by email to info@aplaceforjazz.org. We can also credit your membership to our next concert season or convert your membership into a tax-deductible donation to A Place for Jazz, by letting us know your preference.

To accurately report our annual fiscal status in any event, we respectfully ask that you let us know of your preference by November 15, 2021.

New tax-deductible contributions and donations in support of APFJ may be made at any time by mail directed to A Place for Jazz, P.O. Box 1059, Schenectady NY 12301. We will soon announce a platform for online contributions, memberships and ticket sales.

In closing, we thank you for your current, past and future support of A Place for Jazz. We assure you that we will continue to earn your respect and our reputation as the preeminent presenter of jazz in the Capital Region.

With best wishes for you, your family and loved ones to stay safe and healthy,
The APFJ Board of Directors

For example, a $125 Supporter Level minus the $100 series ticket value leaves $25 as a tax-deductible contribution. In this time of declining arts funding, all contributions are gratefully accepted.
