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.
Tune in the 2nd Tuesday of each month to hear outstanding performers discuss their passions and projects. August 10 we hear about the evolution of jazz drumming with world renowned drummer Willie Jones III.
This past week, the Charlotte Ledger announced the winners of their annual "40 over 40" recognition. JazzArts Charlotte is excited to see CEO Lonnie Davis was on that list, demonstrating her leadership in the community across the past 10 years and especially in the past year we have experienced.
