Happy Jazz Music Appreciation Month, also known as JAM!
Did you know Jazz Appreciation Month is a major holiday among Jazz musicians and vocalists, started in 2001? Ella Fitzgerald’s charitable foundation provided the initial funding.
We celebrate by hosting musical concerts paying tribute to legendary Jazz musicians and vocalists and their contributed works or art. This year, we will celebrate by honoring Ella Fitzgerald’s 100th birthday at our concert coined The Ella Fitztival.
