We were bursting with pride as our talented emerging musicians took to the stage for one great performance after another and for the JAZZ HOUSE ALUMNi BAND, a group of talented young musicians now scattered across the country who found their musical chops at the JAZZ HOUSE, as well as a second home.
Our audience opened up their hearts, and its support allows us to continue the thriving legacy of JAZZ HOUSE KiDS. Every day, we strive to broaden the definition of who gets to be on stage to tell their story, address the lack of access and equity from under-resourced communities and populations, and create a cultural movement that celebrates each child’s unique voice through inclusion and diversity.
The evening ended with a show-stopper finale with all our artists. Huge thanks to our incredible guest artists, student musicians, and wonderful audience. What a way to celebrate 15 years of JAZZ HOUSE KiDS swinging doors open through music, mentoring, education and apprenticeship!
We humbly thank our growing community of supporters that help us achieve our mission.
