THE ANNUAL GALA
We are taking the night off in 2018, however, we still need your help! Each year our gala raises funds solely to support education and outreach activities for youth in our community and your support will help further our education programs and actively preserve the future of jazz in our community. Jazz St. Louis has entertained, trained and educated more than 150,000 students since the year 2000. Through our education programs, students gain access to training from some of the world’s most influential jazz artists. Each education program is uniquely developed to enhance creativity, empower self-confidence and advance leadership skills in young people. We proudly connect youth throughout the metropolitan area and help form life-long bonds that in turn bridge cultural gaps and strengthen the future of jazz in greater St. Louis.
If you’re interested in making a donation to support our education and outreach activities for youth in our community, contact Bree Melton, Assistant Director of Development, at 314-881-3097 or by clicking here.
