Unlike the early days of jazz, places where young musicians can perform in residence are few and far between. NextGenJazz provides a great opportunity for audiences to hear emerging artists and a venue for Chicago’s talented young performers to hone their craft. 

The NextGenJazz program is currently on hiatus.
