necessary backbone and support for our visiting Jazz Musicians. They bring
an impressive variety of skills and work for differing periods of time with

distribution, press and PR, technical support, administration, communications,
event management, driving and IT.
Typically, a volunteer might work one or
two days a week for a month during the build-up, then everyday towards the event
date, plus another day to wind up. Others might work on the evenings of the
Concert and every effort is made to usefully occupy all volunteer time offered.

Want to add your own
It would be nice
to have a Concert Jazz Art Foundation to advance music education for
the public of this Borough and surrounding areas. It could both administer and
co-ordinate the provision of music tuition and youth music activities for young
people and adults. In addition also support the development of music education
in schools and provides a wide range of music making opportunities, including
concert performances, workshops, projects and courses.
This webpage is here to encourage
all generations to become involved in listening to, playing, discussing Jazz,
and conveying its benefits for young people and schools. The website also
includes local Events and Venues where you can expand your knowledge of
Contemporary Jazz Music and its purveyors.
