Jazz Alive

Dedicated to the continuation and preservation of jazz, America’s indigenous art form, Jazz Alive was created to bring this great music to audiences and students who have little to no opportunity to hear and learn from the genre’s great practitioners.  Jazz Alive is committed to presenting concerts, school assemblies, master classes, and school residencies in underserved communities that may be off jazz touring routes, lack jazz presenters, or have little funding for jazz events.
