The nationally-acclaimed Cuesta Jazz Program features a variety of small jazz groups and a big band that focuses on both classic big band sounds and modern arrangements. Over the last several years, Cuesta Jazz has served the community by offering first-class jazz education to its students, supporting the local high schools with an academic jazz festival and an annual honor jazz band, and by performing in a variety of venues throughout the county. Many of our students go on to study at top programs and/or become important musicians in our community.
The budget for each Performing Arts program relies entirely on ticket sales and donations made throughout the year, so naturally, incredible student programs like Cuesta Jazz have been severely impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic.
If you are able to make a donation during this time, any amount is sincerely appreciated. Thank you in advance for your generosity and commitment to supporting the arts at your local community college!
