The Jazz Arts Music Society Announces Hiatus of Operations for Upcoming Season
(Published: August 06, 2012)

August 4, 2012 - Palm Beach, FL
The Jazz Arts Music Society of Palm Beach, Inc. (JAMS) will suspend their annual concert series until further notice. Due to lack of available resources and community support, it has become too difficult to continue to present performances at the level that is expected from JAMS management and members. At this time, JAMS is keeping their non- profit status and maintaining a corporate entity.
The mission, to encourage the performance, promotion, preservation and perpetuation of America's original art form, has been accomplished over the past 13 years. The organization has brought quality music to this community with over 250 concerts, featuring international, national, regional and local artists. We also have given three scholarships to talented young people and helped to foster their development and hosted numerous master classes and participated in a national jazz camp.
As with many non-profit volunteer based organizations, the enormous work load to operate the organization falls on the shoulders of just a handful of dedicated people. Relying on these people to continue year after year certainly has taken its toll. Over the years, the membership has declined and attendance has decreased. Donations and sponsorships have diminished, in spite of the incredible talent JAMS has brought to this community. Sadly, this pause is needed to reassess the viability of continued operations.
This time will be used to reflect on the past and future of JAMS. We may opt to regroup and reorganize with new energy and new faces. JAMS would like to thank everyone who has contributed to our many successes.
