About Us

The Jazz Society of Oregon ™ is an all-volunteer 501(c)(3) non-profit organization whose mission is to promote jazz music in the Pacific Northwest. We seek to provide jazz education, build membership engagement through events and publications, provide scholarships to new and existing artists and programs that teach jazz music, and foster a greater appreciation of this indigenous art form.

Many thanks to all of the members who have volunteered their time during the past 35+ years to keep this organization alive. New volunteers are always welcome. Just send mail to volunteer@jazzoregon.com

Become a Sponsor

There are many ways to collaborate with Cathedral Park Jazz Festival. Because this Festival is FREE, we rely on sponsors to help off-set the costs of production. To become a sponsor, you may donate money or donate products and/or services.

 

We will feature our sponsors on radio, print, internet advertising, and television. During the Festival we offer our sponsors food and drink in a special VIP hospitality tent.
