"Every year, I tell people this will be the best jazz fest ever, and this year I have even more enthusiasm around the fantastic weekend of music we have planned for the Pittsburgh JazzLive International Festival presented by Citizens Bank. On behalf of the Trust, I welcome Citizens Bank as our first Presenting Sponsor.

From Philadelphia to Peru, from Brazil to Brooklyn, and worlds in between, the line up for the Pittsburgh JazzLive International Festival is diverse and abundant. Corea, McBride, Blade, Watts, Palmieri, Iyer…a man named Wadada and a woman named Buika… a big band that promises to Revive, one named after Nat Turner, a group of Vagabonds, a women-led Soul Distribution, and a street party to honor a man that made the color purple mean so many things to people all over the world are all on the schedule for the festival weekend. Can you handle all of this music in 72 hours?

Every year, we make more friends and partners; Newport Jazz Festival, Jazzcorner.com, Modern Piano, University of Pittsburgh, Pittsburgh Winery, North Coast Brewing Company, Courtyard Marriot, P & W Foreign Cars, Rivers Casino and more. These companies believe in our mission and their support is vital to the continued success of PJLIF.

The vibe…”laid back, intimate and inviting” attracts people from all over the world. The JazzLive Crawl, the concerts in the streets, the late night jam sessions makes for a fantastic experience; something for everyone.

YOU make it all worthwhile with your support, your open ears and minds…we couldn’t do it without you. Sponsors like R. K. Mellon Foundation, UPMC, UPMC Health Plan, Highmark Blue Cross Blue Shield, North Coast Brewing Company, P & W Motors, Dollar Bank, Rivers Casino, and sponsors make the Pittsburgh JazzLive International Festival possible."
