Located in an early 19th century historic building in the central part of Yaroslavl, a 1,000-years-old city 260 km Northeast from Moscow, the Jazz Center is a combination of a concert venue, an educational institution, and a research facility, equipped with a 80-seat performance space, several rehearsal rooms, a recording studio, and a library with rich collection of books, video and audio records. In 2017, the Center initiated the Russian Jazz Hall of Fame. The city-owned facility also hosts the Jazz Research Center, a non-government organization working on the preservation of the 95-years-long history of Russian jazz community. During the bi-annual Jazz Over Volga River festival, the Center serves as the hub for after-hours musician jams.
