As large-scale public events and festivals move online, International Jazz Day—an annual event at the end of April that celebrates the music’s heritage and power—is set to stream at-home performances and video drop-ins from around the world.

As part of IJD’s adjustments to the pandemic, the organization’s calling for submissions for inclusion in its April 30 event. Performances and other video submissions can be emailed to or uploaded to the IJD Dropbox account.
