The L.A. Jazz Society’s Jazz in Schools campaign will take place during Black History month throughout the LAUSD.  Visit the Jazz in Schools section on this website for more information, or click below for a full schedule of schools.

Your membership is important in carrying out our mission and in supporting the continuation of the organization. The Los Angeles Jazz Society is a true labor of love for jazz aficionados: a volunteer organization with no full time staff to manage its operations. Almost all of the income from events is directed to our education programs.
