Moonlight Jazz Society (MJS) is a NEW non-profit created by award-winning artists Leila Neverland and Neil Gray. MJS intends to support Kelowna’s growth by offering up something unique: a curated live performance concert series featuring primarily jazz composers in Kelowna’s only piano room, made possible by the generous donation of a baby grand piano to the Society.
