Support Hudson Jazzworks, become a member

The Hudson Jazz Workshop attracts instrumentalists and vocalists from around the world. Our participants demonstrate their enthusiasm for our mission by the great distances they travel (often repeatedly) and through the tuition fees they pay. Beyond their words, the expression on their faces is perhaps the best measure of the priceless treasure they receive from their time spent here.

A small yet fervent community of Hudson Valley jazz fans has developed at our annual concert at the Hudson Opera House. Our audience enjoys the music that our participants perform with our world-class faculty and renowned guest artists. The numbers and the exposure we receive are increasing annually.

Our goal is to establish a scholarship fund for qualified applicants with demonstrated financial need. This requires an ongoing commitment from donors with a long-term interest in our educational and artistic mission. To continue to carry out our mission in this challenging economic period, Hudson Jazzworks appeals for your financial contribution. We need member and donor support to cover the rising costs of presenting the Hudson Jazz Workshop. These costs include:

•Artist fees
•Artist transportation
•Meal preparation
•Artist and participant housing

Each membership makes a big difference. Each gift has a tremendous impact. One more note: Our board of directors are unpaid volunteers. We do it from the heart. Hudson Jazzworks offers several opportunities for tax-deductible giving to carry on our activities. We welcome the support of members, as well as private donations of any size. Your contributions help to sustain and grow our programs and to increase our regional and international impact. All members receive free admission to our annual concert at the Hudson Opera House. Friends, Sponsors and Patrons also receive free CDs by our critically acclaimed artist/faculty, Armen Donelian and Marc Mommaas. Benefactors are invited to a reception with the artists.

Please download the membership form to find out more about how you can join as a member or to make a donation at a level that is suitable for you.

Board of Directors,
Armen Donelian
