Dear fellow Philadelphia Area Jazz Professional or Arts Patron,

You are invited to the first annual Philadelphia Jazz Professionals Meetup (#phillyjazzmeetup) at South Kitchen & Jazz Parlor on 600 N Broad St in Philadelphia on Tuesday, April 4th between 4-7pm.

It's an exciting time for Philadelphia jazz and it's my hope to bring us together to discuss new ideas and potential collaborations with the thought of developing a deeper level of cohesiveness in our community. We all share similar goals so let's connect and recognize the important work we do.

In addition to networking opportunities, we've scheduled a two hour pitch session for attendees to announce upcoming projects or speak briefly about their organizations. We'll also set aside space for tables to showcase printed material and business cards.

I've included the agenda and meetup description below.

Space is limited, so please RSVP (either here http://bit.ly/2m0VtRG or by email) and let me know if you plan to participate in the pitch session.

Thank you and hope to hear from you soon!
