We’ve put together A virtual festival: Music & good times while you stay at home that you can share and view any time throughout the summer. It’s our way of connecting with you during this pandemic. Let’s share our love of music and of Juneau Jazz & Classics no matter the circumstances.

What you will find at the virtual festival: Spotify playlists, old photos and videos, stories, virtual postcards from past musicians, and festival memories from the festival family! You can also scroll down this page to discover other groups that are presenting live music. We are glad you are here.

Support the festival

We are committed to bringing you a stellar music festival, as soon as it is safe to do so, hopefully in the fall. Please help us get through the summer and start planning, which includes hiring artists for concerts and residencies.

Donations support free lunchtime concerts, school visits by festival musicians, complimentary tickets through local non-profits for those in need, intensive workshops for all abilities, affordable concert tickets, and a world-class music festival in a world-class setting.

Live stream events

Because we are a small staff, we don’t have the capabilities to set up livestreaming, but we CAN lift up the musicians and presenters who are sharing their music until they can fly to places like Juneau and perform live.

We are using our calendar to promote livestream music events while we all hunker down at home. Add these events to your calendar and follow these wonderful, inventive organizations and artists.
