Offering more than 40 performances from September through May, Jorgensen presents jazz as well as major soloists, orchestras, chamber ensembles, comedians, world music, popular artists, classical and contemporary dance, Broadway theatre and children's shows.

With the ability to change house settings, Jorgensen can create three different environments to suit the nature of each performance. In addition to the full hall, a cozy nightclub atmosphere is created for cabaret events with candlelit tables on the main floor, with food and drinks completing the mood. A smaller, more intimate setting is created for chamber and children's events.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
