Project Description

The New Music; New Audiences project is dedicated to developing a model for increasing access to jazz performances by simultaneously cultivating young audiences and ensembles.Working with presenters, schools, community organizations, and new media platforms, we will strive to create sustainable infrastructure in communities across America that reinvigorates enthusiasm for jazz among young people. By harnessing the available energy and capacity of emergent ensembles, we plan to provide the kind of spark that young audiences need to get interested in this music, as well as the connectivity necessary to sustain their interest over the long term.
