Bringing the best in jazz to Cincinnati
Jazz Vivace is a nonprofit organization dedicated to presenting performances by internationally recognized jazz artists for Cincinnati area residents. We work to foreground Cincinnati as a city that attracts international jazz acts, produces internationally recognized artists, and is home to artists who play at a global level.
We believe performances in smaller venues can provide audiences with the best jazz listening experience. While Jazz Vivace presents some performances in larger venues, we focus our programming efforts on concerts in small venues where listeners can experience jazz performances in a setting akin to a chamber music space.
