Westmoreland Jazz Society

Westmorland Jazz Society In January 1997, the Westmoreland Museum of American Art established the Westmoreland Jazz Society to provide a venue for America's classical music art form -- jazz. Since the Museum's collection is comprised of American art, the connection has made a great combo!

The WJS is a vital organization run by volunteers. The Society's mission is to reach out to regional artists by providing a venue for performing.

The WJS meets at the Museum on the third Thursday of the month from September through June for a jazz performance.

During its season, the WJS presents many of the finest and most respected jazz musicians of the region.

To keep the music playing, we need your support -- consider taking a Museum membership or join us on the third Thursday of the month.
