What We Do
Mission: Connecting the cultural community and developing an audience for jazz through quality education, performance and musician support. Vision: To be a catalyst for cultural enrichment and music education that brings creative inspiration to the lives of the citizens of the Charlotte region.
Jazz Arts Initiative is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization made up of educators, cultural arts patrons, musicians and individuals dedicated to the continued development of Charlotte’s arts heritage.
The organization promotes quality music education, performance opportunities for musicians and their audiences, and artist support.
IMPACT OF COVID-19 - SPECIFIC NEEDS:
How we are impacted: All education and performance initiatives have been canceled April through July, which eliminates all event income as well as all musician support for most of a full season plus half the year of youth education.
Financial donation request: Please consider an incremental gift to support local jazz musicians transition virtual and get them working again.
Jazz music was born of the struggles of the civil rights movement. Integral to its mission, JazzArts Charlottes consistently seeks diversity and connection in everything we do.
