WELCOME AUGUST WILSON AFRICAN AMERICAN CULTURAL CENTER FRIENDS! WELCOME FRIENDS OF JAZZ!

The Pittsburgh International Jazz Festival is a project of the August Wilson African American Cultural Center. We are grateful for your support and we have good news…

The former Jazz Friends benefits program has expanded. All of the wonderful benefits you enjoyed as part of the Jazz Friends program have been enhanced – we’ve added more!

Become an AWAACC member, and the same donation you made in the past offers you access to the same Jazz Festival benefits AS WELL AS special events, receptions and discounts at the Center ALL YEAR LONG! You will still get access to VIP seating at the Jazz Festival.

Thank you for your support of the August Wilson African American Cultural Center and our important programming – programming that focuses on the African American experience and the rich culture of the African diaspora. YOU are helping us transform the way we think about the world…
