Edmonds Jazz Connection & Foundation for Edmonds Schools Music Lab
The Edmonds Jazz Connection is a local music festival, including a full day of performances from nationally recognized and award-winning High School and Middle School jazz programs from throughout the Pacific Northwest, and highlights numerous student groups that have performed in prestigious competitions nationwide. At the conclusion of the academic year, Jazz Connection is an encore for these accomplished students to perform for the community, and showcase their improvisational talents while playing side-by-side with professional musicians.
While a principal goal of the event is to connect our community with its many wonderful student jazz musicians, we use this event as a pivotal fundraiser to directly support our school music programs and students.
Through the Music Lab initiative, we work directly with the school district leadership and choral and band directors to identify impactful creative classroom programs to invest in, and any pressing needs of school music programs. We also provide funding, and organizational support to ensure success of these initiatives.
All proceeds from this year’s event will go toward:
- 1. Funding the Edmonds Jazz Connection Music Lab Program and associated creative classroom programs for immersive study experiences in improvisational performance and composition skills development.
- 2. Expanding scholarships for student musicians continuing their education at college, university or trade school.
- 3. Establishing quarterly Pro-Am clinics for students to work directly with professional musicians on development of improvisational performing skills.
- 4. Awarding block grants to schools to further enrich music education offerings through immersive study opportunities.
Admission to the event is free, and donations will be accepted to support educational and scholarship programs.
PLEASE JOIN US IN HELPING TO SUPPORT AN EXCEPTIONAL MUSIC EDUCATION EXPERIENCE FOR ALL EDMONDS SCHOOLS AND PARTICIPATING MUSIC PROGRAMS!
