We present well-known jazz musicians from all over the United States, Arizona, and many of our own local musicians performing at Courthouse Plaza, The Hassayampa Inn, Hotel St. Michael, The Ruth Street Theater at Prescott High School, and Prescott Center of the Arts. The Prescott High School Jazz Ensemble opens our Gala Concert on Saturday night. We have jazz fans from several states come to Prescott for our festival and we want to bring even more out of state tourists to our area in the future.
In keeping with our dedication to music education, we have musical groups make assembly presentations in elementary schools in Prescott, at no charge to the schools. These mini-concerts were very well received by the students, parents and faculty alike at every school.
We need your help to make our festival the best it can be this year. As with symphony orchestras, festivals, and other non-profit corporations, we can't pay the bills on ticket sales alone. We hope you will see fit to become a sponsor for our festival and for all the educational programs we are planning to present to our young people. We are sponsored by Friends of Big Band Jazz, a 501c3 Non Profit Corporation, so your sponsorships are tax deductable.
