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.

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.

Students of Emory Jazz have been a part of an exceptional and nurturing space that prepares students to be the next generation of jazz artists, but also creates connections and educational experiences with the industry’s top jazz artists. The generosity of donors like you ensure that we can continue to provide these opportunities to students now and in to the future.
