CRESCENDO JAZZ is an interdenominational, international Christian fellowship of jazz musicians – exchanging issues of life and music and growing together in faith, rooted in local communities and churches – in close connection to professional musicians of other genres.


Who we are and what we do

Crescendo JAZZ is a initiative of Crescendo International, a non-denominational Christian organization serving within the world of professional music and the arts.

Established in 1985, Crescendo is a diverse network of thousands of professional musicians and artists sharing commonality in faith and art.

We work as a international Crescendo JAZZ core team from Germany, Switzerland, Hungary, France and the US. 

Our dream is to network, encourage and serve jazz musicians all over the world. You may find more information about our network and our worldwide projects here.
