Since our inception in 2009, JazzArts Charlotte has been proud to continue our work as the premiere jazz organization in Charlotte with a focus on community enrichment through quality music education, performance excellence, and musician support.
JazzArts Charlotte has grown into one of Charlotte’s most celebrated non-profit arts and education institutions, evolving to serve the needs of our community. Our goal is to continue to serve this treasured community for many years to come.
In celebration of Women’s History Month, the JAZZ ROOM welcomes renowned drummer and bandleader, Sherrie Maricle and FIVE PLAY. This quintet is comprised of members from the world-famous Jazz DIVA Orchestra rhythm section with two of its foremost soloists. This collective is rooted in the jazz tradition with a “creative vision to swing through the twenty-first century”.
JazzArts Charlotte welcomes Sherrie Maricle for this one-of-a-kind jazz educational workshop. This applied workshop is open to middle and high schooler musicians, with at least a year on your instrument. All instruments are welcome – you are invited to bring it along.
The vibrant sounds of New Orleans recently echoed with the passion and dedication of countless individuals who gathered for the 2024 Jazz Education Network Conference in New Orleans, LA. As the President and CEO of JazzArts Charlotte and the Board President of the Jazz Education Network, I am filled with tremendous pride as my two worlds came together at this exceptional event.
