Nash Anniv Logo Date 400px

The Nash is celebrating our first remarkable decade of performances by emerging student artists, local pros, and giants of America’s art form; unique educational programs that provide unrivaled coaching and inspiration to the next generation of jazz musicians and educators; weekly multi-generational jam sessions that draw musicians of all levels from far and wide; and numerous collaborations that have helped to expand the reach and accessibility of jazz. Giant Steps, for sure; but we’ve only just begun.

The Nash 10th Anniversary festivities will be October 28-30, 2022, and we're very proud of the stellar line-up of music we've put together to celebrate this milestone.
