What do we do with your donation?

  • Ticket revenue alone is not enough to pay for our concerts.
  • We pay every musician who performs at the James
  • We keep our 1920 Steinway in peak condition.
  • We offer a variety of jazz, popular, folk, classical, and family concerts – right in your own backyard.
  • We keep the lights on. Your donation helps us pay for the basics like heat, electricity, water, and building upkeep. We wouldn’t be able to do what we love without our historic home, and without YOUR help!
