Our mission is to empower ALL aspiring Berkeley High school jazz students to pursue an extraordinary jazz education within Berkeley's very large public school. The Berkeley High Jazz Parent Association invests directly in professional section leaders, scholarships for individual lessons, international travel and festival fees and JazzGirls Day, the cost of which are all funded by donations. Since state funding for public education in California and especially music education is not adequate for this task, The BHS Jazz program and supporting parent association raise a large portion of the funds needed as we believe all students deserve what BHS Jazz can give them. We hope you'll be moved to help out and to come out to one of our concerts!
We would love to have anyone interested join our team, Berkeley High Jazz Juggernauts, or if you'd rather just make a donation - we'd surely be jazzed about that!
