Annual Fundraiser

Join us for a virtual celebration of Kuumbwa Jazz’s 45th anniversary! Register to enjoy our virtual gala video program – featuring exclusive performances by Gerald Clayton, Claudia Villela, and Benny Green – as well as your chance to bid on exceptional auction items, including numerous top-shelf wine lots. Learn more, register, and enjoy a sneak peak of the auction items by clicking here to visit the event homepage.

Even as we face change and uncertainty, Kuumbwa Jazz is dedicated to reimagining ways of uplifting our community, near and far, through the power of music. Our new video series, Mondays with Kuumbwa, keeps performances continuing on our stage, and our virtual music education initiatives provide resources to instruct and inspire.

Together, we have the power to sustain Kuumbwa Jazz’s world-class reputation for bringing artists and audiences together – even when enjoyed from the comfort and safety of your own surroundings – and your financial contribution will ensure Kuumbwa stays your virtual home for jazz.

We look forward to celebrating creativity and toasting to Jazz for the Ages!
