Membership donations provide essential financial support and help keep the music coming. Thank you for partnering with the Bach to preserve live Jazz as an art form!

Bach memberships have a fixed annual term from August 1 through July 31. New memberships purchased during June and July begin immediately and expire July 31 of the following year.  

Until we return to full operations, these policies supersede many of the membership benefits described below.

  • Live Stream passes – Membership benefit of 1-2 complimentary live stream passes now included for performances through December, 2021. Passes will be discounted to $0 when proper credentials are provided during the online purchase process. Concierge ticketing services for live stream passes will be offered to Jazz Masters and Jazz Devotees.

  • In-person ticketing – Offered only to Bach members during Summer, 2021. Attendance limited to 50% of capacity and all attendees must be fully vaccinated. Every membership level will be ticketed via Concierge form; Profile forms not required. Advance purchase only via Concierge form, no online ticketing, and no sales at the door. Add to your address book and watch for Concierge invitations on: June 18, July 2, and July 16 for the concert 9 days later. Don’t see your invitation? Email to request a re-send.

  • Guest ticket availability – Guest tickets will be available on a space available basis. Annual guest ticket limits will be suspended during this transition period of partial operations. Once full operations resume, annual guest ticket limits will be reinstated, with pro-rated limits for the remainder of the year.

  • No exchanges – Until further notice, member exchanges are suspended. All ticket requests may be modified until Friday noon, just 2 days prior to the concert and closely aligned with the usual 48 hour exchange deadline.

As always, email us at for ticketing help.
