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.
This holiday season, the JAZZ ROOM is bringing together nine musicians to share their music in an online holiday performance. We sat down with several of them to talk about the holidays and their music.
Lonnie Davis has been a part of the Jazz Education Network (JEN) for ten years, announcing this year her leadership role as President-Elect for the Board of Directors. This unique global organization is holding its annual conference, "The JEN Experience" this week online, and perhaps because of that, is as valuable as it has ever been.
JazzArts Charlotte is one of five organizations to receive a substantial multi-year grant from the Knight Foundation in order to continue to make the most of digital opportunities to engage and build on their audience.
