Jazz at the Chapel

The Chapel of the Sisters  94-15 159th Street  Jamaica, Queens

Welcome to Jazz at the Chapel!

Our Mission
Jazz at the Chapel began in 2009 with a collaboration dedicated to featuring local jazz performers in the unique and intimate setting known as the Illinois Jacquet Performance Space at the Chapel of the Sisters in downtown Jamaica, Queens.  Queens has been, and still is home to jazz and to so many jazz greats.  We plan to carry on the proud tradition of live jazz here at the Chapel. 
Please join us!

Cate Ludlam, executive producer
Tom Zlabinger, artistic director

Our concerts offer an opportunity for the audience to enjoy the performance in a relaxed and informal atmosphere.  Over the years we have hosted well-known artists, local talent and students just beginning to perform.  All have contributed to the success of these free concerts.  Some of our most popular concerts have been performed by music students at York College, whose energy, originality and talent are exceptional.  Original music shares the stage with the classics and every evening is unique.  
Come join us this season! 

We thank the City of New York Department of Parks and Recreation, Prospect Cemetery Association, Greater Jamaica Development Corporation, New York Landmarks Conservancy, York College and private donors for their support.

Open to the public.  No admission fee.  Please arrive early; no reserved seating.
