The Jazz Legacy Foundation is a non-profit organization, that is dedicated to keeping the arts alive for our young people. They provide educational scholarships, creative arts, leadership development, mentoring workshops, and community partnerships.
This is some great work, as we all know that music and the arts are the first things to go in the schools in the event of a budget cut.
Over the past five years, donations have been collected and passed on to various music departments in the greater Norfolk area.
The Jazz Legacy Foundation 6th Annual Gala Weekend will once again take place in Norfolk, VA. It will happen October 18th – 21st at the Hilton Norfolk The Main.
