Welcome to  our 12th. season, August 12-15, 2021

The Hudson Valley Jazz Festival continues to celebrate the American musical art form of jazz featuring local artists.  While we’ve presented  some of the more nationally recognized names, the purpose of our series is to highlight local jazz musicians deserving wider recognition. There are excellent jazz musicians working each week throughout the valley and beyond.

We rely on the presenting venues and donations to pay the musicians.  So in that regard those venues have a say in who performs with the festival making suggestions.   Each August we coordinate a schedule and try to bring a variety of performances folks will enjoy.  We do our best to include as many musicians as funding allows.  Obviously , there are many who may not appear  and are great artists as well.  We welcome your support to help us create additional shows featuring the artists you’d like to hear.
