We had a busy week with educational outreach in the community.
The Jazz Diversity Project played for six schools in the past week, visiting Sioux Falls Patrick Henry, Axtell Park, Memorial, Edison, and Whittier along with Brandon Valley Middle School.
Over 1,200 students saw the Jazz Diversity Project. Not bad for one week.
(See pic - Jimmy and Nate thought that as horn players, they deserved to take a seat on the thrones at Axtell Park.)
On Tuesday, the second Jazz 101: For Adults was held at CJ Callaway's. Over 50 people gathered to learn about jazz guitarists and the history of Blue Note Records while meeting other music fans.
Thanks so much to Randy, Tina and the team at CJ Callaway's, PRIME Magazine, and Paul Schilf for making this program a success!
The next Jazz 101: For Adults will be held on April 14th in celebration of Jazz Appreciation Month. Stay tuned for more information!
