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!

After a stellar year, the York College Blue Notes '12 gave one last performance at Illinois Jacquet Performance Space.
The York College Blue Notes '12 were not only finalists in this year's Charles Mingus Competition, but also made their debut at St. Peter's Church (aka the Jazz Church) in Manhattan, performed on a festival headlined by the one-and-only Herbie Hancock, and received the GOLD AWARD at this year's NYSSMA Festival at NYU. And those are just the highlights! It's been a great ride.
