A CAMP TO BUILD A DREAM ON
We put Instruments in their hands, Music in their hearts, and Hope in their future.
Jazz Arts Project has created a unique non-profit model. This organization provides valuable educational experiences to area youth including classes, workshops, and special programs with a focus on at-risk and underserved youth. The organization funds these programs by producing high quality professional gala concerts at such venues as the Count Basie Theatre and the Two River Theater as well as through donations, grants and sponsorships. Annual events include The Enchanted Evening of Song, a series of lectures titled "Talkin' Jazz", the Summer Jazz Café series, and the Sinatra Birthday Bash.
A "Camp To Build A Dream On" is a free summer music day camp for area middle school students who get exposed to a world of opportunity learning to read write and play music in a fun, safe and nurturing environment. Funds raised in this drive will be used to hire professional educators & staff as well as to procure facilities, instruments and music during several weeks of daily music instruction.
