It has been a fabulous few weeks of jazz!  The Summer of Jazz continues as we attempt to make jazz music accessible and FREE in our community.

As we celebrate the 4th of July, it is important to recognize the role jazz has played in being a voice for freedom in our nation.  In these perilous times of turmoil, jazz once again represents the voice and music of freedom!
