The Jazz Legacy Foundation is all about preserving the idea of Jazz music. They do this by sponsoring educational programs, creative arts, leadership development, workshops and community partnerships. For example, they have a Celebrity Golf Tournament which supports Jazz and music education. They also have an Instruments for Change program that provides musical instruments for young people who would not otherwise have the opportunity to obtain them.
This is some good work. Something we all can get behind.
The Jazz Legacy Foundation 5th Annual Gala Weekend will be happening November 9th-12th, 2017 at the Hampton Roads Convention Center in Hampton, VA. Four days of great music is in store for this important event.
