More than ever, we need a way to connect, an opportunity to unite, a way to turn from the past and look at the future, a celebration of the joys of life – this just described Mardi Gras. The rhythmic heartbeat of the season of Carnival, enjoyed each year locally, famously in New Orleans, and around the globe, has become jazz. This month, we explore that beat.
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.
Thank you to those who contributed to a powerful start to the giving season this year, exceeding our $5000 Giving Tuesday kickoff goal! Your support helped to show the importance of music to those we serve, and demonstrated the caring connection of our jazz community.
