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.
This week was the anniversary of the first sit-in, right here in Greensboro NC, For Black History Month, JazzArts Charlotte, seeks to offer a lens of jazz and civil rights history to illuminate the efforts of the past and demonstrate their impacts and messages for today, with workshops and a culminating performance of the groundbreaking album “We Insist!”
JazzArts Charlotte is excited to announce another session of online jazz workshops for youth and adults, beginning the end of January 2021. The 6 to 12-week online workshops cover topics ranging from Jazz History to instrument focused.
