MCG Jazz’s mission is to preserve, present and promote jazz. Through our
performances, we strengthen the long time Pittsburgh jazz community
and contribute to the overall cultural and artistic diversity of the
region. Through our live recordings we reach a national and
international audience - a market we’d like to grow. Through our
educational programs we are able to have students attend the concerts at
low or no cost to them, make artists available for master classes and
provide opportunities for internships in production and marketing.
