Philadelphia Jazz Project - Remember How It Started?


Sign in to view read count
Greetings folks,

As a musician, someone introduced you to the music... to your instrument. Remember that moment? Remember that person? Remember how you felt? Now, suppose that it never happened!

That's the kind of environment that increasing numbers of young people face living in within our communities. Schools are not really making that connection between musician and child possible anymore. Many communities aren't really making that connection happen either.

Philadelphia Jazz Project in partnership with other organizations, including Philadelphia Parks & Recreation is developing a plan to fill the gap. We are looking for Jazz musicians willing and interested in introducing young people to the music. The young people will range from 6 to 17 years of age. The activities will take place during after-school hours from 3:00pm to 7:00pm. This is not volunteer work. We want your best. All participating musicians will be paid for their time.

If you are interested or have any questions, please contact us at: [email protected] If you're unable to take part in this initiative, please share this page.

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
