2019 marks the 10th year of service to the Charlotte community for JazzArts Charlotte, formerly Jazz Arts Initiative. We are proud to continue our work as the premiere jazz organization in Charlotte with our focus on community enrichment through quality music education, live performances, and musician support.
In the past decade JazzArts Charlotte has grown into one of Charlotte’s most celebrated non-profit arts and education institutions. Our goal is to continue to serve this treasured community for many years to come.
The Smithsonian Museum of American History created this celebration in 2001 to recognize the extraordinary heritage and history of jazz. As we celebrate the only truly American musical art form, this month we focus on the power of music to unite people.
