The DC Jazz Festival Music Education Program provides free and low-cost education programs to over 2,500 DC Public and Charter School students, teachers, and their families, especially in underserved communities; and serves 4,800 through Jazz ’n Families Fun Days, a prelude to our annual festival. From early childhood through to adult learners, the DCJF Education Program engages and enhances the lives of a vast demographic of DC Metro-area community members with robust and comprehensive programming. The DC Jazz Festival is a recipient of the 2018 Wells Fargo Cultural Excellence Grant based on our fundamental ground work with DC Jazz Bops! and the 2018 DC Mayor’s Art Award for Excellence in Creative Industries–presenting great concerts and high-quality music education programs throughout the DC area.
