LA Jazz Society: This is what our donations fund!

(Charles Owens leads the students in a Jazz March.)

The Los Angeles Jazz Society just completed presenting 90 concerts in 45 elementary schools during the month of February “Black History Month”. Over 23,000 young students clapped, marched, snapped fingers and grooved through interactive jazz concerts presented by some of the finest musicians in Los Angeles.

After 23 years of presenting Jazz in Schools concerts, over 423,000 young students have experienced the Joy of Jazz. They learned about the history of jazz, the different styles and jazz artists, how the musicians relate in the improvisational style of jazz and all about the musical instruments. You can see the look of delight on the faces of the children and teachers tell us “This is an experience they will never forget. Please come back.” And -- with your continued support -- we will!
