Jazz Is Life

“Jazz is about being in the moment”- Herbie Hancock.

Here at St. James’ we celebrate the music of freedom and life. Every year we come together to share “in the moment”, to immerse ourselves in its embrace and history.  Join us this November as we welcome two-time Grammy award winner Diane Schuur together with a host of great musicians.





Our Sponsors

We could not present Jazz at St. James’ without the support of our incredible sponsors.  Their generous and gracious commitment year after year means that we can continue to bring great musicians to our stage.
