About this Event
The dedicated team of volunteers who represent the Skipp Pearson Jazz Foundation have spent nine months creating an amazing series of special public arts education programs in support of UNESCO’s International Jazz Day 2020.
The present challenges we face in America due to the COVID19 “global” pandemic have all but brought the original project, as planned, to a standstill.
However, in the spirit of innovation, and seeking to take advantage of the technical conferencing tools that are available in this time of “social distancing”, the Pearson Foundation will not stand aside and relinquish months of tireless combined efforts with an indefinite postponement. In fairness to the wonderful artists involved with our project, and with respect for the talents of our performance and funding partners, who have invested their trust in us, we are pleased to announce that on Thursday, April 30th, the last day of National Jazz Appreciation Month, the Foundation will present a Virtual Day of Jazz.
The planned program will offer something for everyone!
All programs are FREE…we request that each viewer please offer a monetary donation for the benefit of our artists… that “folds” $$!!
What we hope will become a global celebration for lovers of jazz music, is being held in honor of the men and women who are no-longer with us, but upon whose shoulders we still stand in the music industry.
So do-not wait. Plan to join us for the celebration!!
