We are delighted and humbled to receive a Dexter Gordon level $500 sponsorship from a very generous soul who believes in ColaJazz’s mission to grow, elevate and bolster the jazz community in and around Columbia, SC through recordings, events, education and providing an organized resource for all things jazz. Their generous $500 sponsorship will help grow jazz in and around Columbia, SC and our state.
ColaJazz is determined to offer lasting opportunities for musicians of all ages, all levels, regardless of socio-economic status, and to develop not only their musicianship, but also their community-mindedness. This anonymous sponsor is being a part of bringing this vision to fruition and supporting our city’s cultural and economic growth.
This person would also like their sponsorship to be in celebration of the life and legacy South Carolina’s Jazz Ambassador Skipp Pearson who passed away June 5, 2017.
