PATHWAYS TO JAZZ AWARDING RECORDING GRANTS TO JAZZ MUSICIANS.
Boulder, CO (May 1, 2015)Now in its second year, Pathways To Jazz will award grants again to jazz musicians to support costs associated with producing a recording. Pathways To Jazz exists to provide opportunities for jazz musicians of all ages to succeed in their artistic and educational development by funding qualified jazz musicians to record their music and further their artistry and career. Pathways To Jazz seeks to connect people with the rich tradition of jazz in our musical heritage and to expand the reach of that music to a wide audience, especially to those who may not otherwise have access to see, listen, learn or play jazz. Since jazz is a uniquely American art form it is the program’s objective to see this rich tradition continue for future generations. Pathways to Jazz knows the value that recorded work plays in furthering artistry and supports artists who are unable to make provisions for themselves to take this essential step. Five grants were awarded in 2014 and those artists can be found on www.pathwaystojazz.com.
To be eligible, an artist must have the capability to produce a studio-quality recording, can evidence a strong artistic track record, and would clearly benefit from producing a recording in terms of artistic development and in furthering and preserving jazz music. Emerging and established artists are eligible and recorded works can be original or the works of other contemporary composers. The creative control of the recording remains with the artist. Online applications are available May 1, 2015 at the Boulder County Arts Alliance webpage www.bouldercountyarts.org. A grant coaching session will be offered and the deadline to apply is June 30, 2015.
As an individual, organization or business you can support the mission of Pathways To Jazz to document and provide wider exposure for jazz music by making a donation to the project through the Boulder County Arts Alliance.
For more information and to apply or donate, please go to www.bouldercountyarts.orgor call 303-250-7660.
Pathways To Jazz is sponsored by the Boulder County Arts Alliance.
06•28•2015 - Jump of Jazz
Jump for Jazz
A Day of Workshops, Demonstrations, and Performances
Jump for Jazz is a one-time music education event to take place on Sunday 6/28 at the Dairy Center for the Arts, Boulder, Colorado. It will include free concurrent educational sessions during the day and a ticketed evening jazz concert.
The purpose of this event is to educate the public in general and youth in particular about the many varieties of jazz and how each is created and performed. We will be publicizing locally and reaching out in particular to the youth population in our efforts.
The Jump for Jazz Organizing Committee plans to use all three theaters at the Dairy, and offer three concurrent hour-long workshops throughout the day, each focusing on a different type of jazz. Each session will have several musicians who explain how their genre of jazz is created and executed.
The day will start at 11 am and end at 10 pm. The final event of the day will be a concert in the performance space, exhibiting each of the genres that were offered in the daytime sessions and maybe a crossover of all of them. Whereas the daytime workshop sessions will be free, the evening concert starting at 7pm will be a ticketed event. The Dairy Center for the Arts is working with us to make the performance areas conducive to our requirements.
Jump for Jazz holds 501c3 non-profit status. All gifts to Jump for Jazz are tax-deductible. Where a business or organization is making a donation, we will include your logo as well. In addition to local donations and fundraising efforts, we are also working toward getting grants and fiscal sponsorship from the Boulder County Arts Alliance (BCAA).
