WHAT WE DO.

Jazz is uplifting, instills hope, fuels healing and creates a lasting experience. From a parent seeing their child light up finding focus through the music, to a cancer patient forgetting about the pain for moment, to a troubled youth experiencing the possibilities of healthier communication and more, ColaJazz Outreach makes a difference. We strive to enrich and inspire the Midlands community by sharing jazz anywhere it is needed.
