There are three main factors we consider in programming the Festival and inviting artists to perform:

2.      Quality: Artists must be experienced performers, demonstrating a high degree of artistic excellence.

3.      Diversity: We seek diversity in both the styles of jazz presented and in the demographic makeup of the performing ensemble, reflecting the cultural diversity that is Washington Heights.

To apply, please send your info, including website and/or video links, to the Jazz WaHi contact us page. Submission deadline September 18, 2019. We will notify you no later than October 15, 2019.
