The Emory Jazz Alliance is an organization devoted to supporting jazz education, awareness, and performance at Emory University. The mission of the Emory Jazz Alliance has three parts:

Awareness: Raise visibility of Jazz at Emory and in the community; Encourage university, community, foundation, and corporate involvement in the Jazz Program at Emory; Promote Jazz-focused collaborations with local venues, jazz festivals, public and private organizations that encourage and support jazz music, musicians, junior high and high school students

Education: Support Emory Jazz Studies by providing funding for instruments, equipment for the Jazz Studio, the Jazz Music library; Fund affiliate jazz faculty, visiting instructors, and music lessons for students, computer hardware and software, and travel.

Performance: Support the Emory Jazz Festival now and into the future; support and encourage other jazz performances at Emory; support collaborative efforts at composition and performance with local and regional resources and organizations.

Emory's artistic resources are diverse and extraordinary.  Emory is our neighborhood arts and music university.  It offers music, theater, film, lectures, and an evolving intellectual environment. Read the Emory Jazz Alliance Newsletter.
