Who are we working with?

These are some of the world-class jazz musicians we are working with and bringing to Sitka Jazz Week. They have made it a priority to join us and pouring their knowledge and experience into each student.

We are so appreciative of their time and effort to come to Sitka and partner with us. Check out their music, websites, and socials to learn more about each of them and all they have to offer each person at Sitka Jazz Week.
