New England Jazz Connections (NEJC) is a performing arts organization that presents concerts in conjunction with non-profits, charities, or advocacy groups to raise money and awareness for worthy causes. Our belief is that music has the power to bring people together, and that doing good in the world through the shared experience of live music benefits musicians, audiences, and commuities. Our mission is to foster community through shared experience, raise the profile of jazz and jazz artists in New England, and help existing organizations carry out their vital work. NEJC is commited to presenting a diverse and inclusive series of concerts, highlighting artists and causes which advance the ideals of a more equitable and just society.
