South Side Jazz Coalition

Music | Education | People | Synergy

The South Side Jazz Coalition is a gathering of music professionals working to bring live jazz performance and free jazz performances back to the underserved population of the South Side of Chicago.

What We Do

The Mission of the non profit charitable organization the South Side Jazz Coalition (SSJC) is to create a synergy between artists, producers, students, seniors and venues in Chicago by promoting and producing live performance, educational events and business opportunities. The SSJC will also strive to be used as a vessel to bring music education and mentoring, specifically for the proliferation of the American art form of Jazz to inner city youth with a strong focus on partnering with and rejuvenating impoverished communities in Chicago with the hope of returning Chicago back to its rich jazz presence and prominence of the past.
