We are delighted and humbled to receive a Charlie Parker level $200 sponsorship from Dr. Darrel and Beverly Staat who believe 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 $200 sponsorship is now scholarship in their name for a deserving 2017 student.
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 camp is their chance to be a part of bringing this vision to fruition and to support our city’s cultural and economic growth. Dr. Darrel and Beverly Staat are doing just that.
