The Arts and a Health Crisis

The health and safety of our community is Jazz Bridge’s top priority.
So, in light of recent news surrounding coronavirus (COVID-19), we are sorry to share with you that the upcoming Neighborhood Concerts in Roxborough, Cheltenham and Collingswood have been cancelled.

We do hope to bring these talented artists either to one of our future neighborhood concerts or presenting partnerships in the coming months. Please look for updates on our social media outlets: Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and in our newsletter.
We will continue to revise our plans as this situation evolves, but for those who wish to help mitigate the “serious financial impact” that this will have on our music community through show cancellations and lost wages, please consider making a gift to help support them during these most difficult times

Of course, the safety and well-being of our community is always our first priority. We encourage you to continue to support the music you love at in the safety of your home, online, or your personal music collection.

Please take good care!
