Who We Are:
Jazz Day AZ Crossing Borders is an Arizona base Non profit Foundation dedicated to Uniting the State of Arizona around UNESCO /Herbie Hancock International Jazz Day Celebration. We are dedicated to the education of students of all ages and cultural. Through performance and interaction, we introduce our audience to musical genres from New Orleans and beyond.
Our Philosophy/What We Do:
Jazz blurs the boundaries between race, ethnicity culture. It unites us as a human race, based not on what we look like or where we live, but by its indescribable ability to move us beyond words. For these reasons, it is more important now because of the political climate than ever to bring Jazz music to the southern Bolder of Sonora Mexico at large!
Jazz Day AZ Crossing Borders provides 2 days of Jazz festival music workshop and fun. 30-45min of high energy, interactive assemblies designed to keep students engaged and excited, while exposing them to New Orleans Jazz and more genres across the globe. Clinics are available..
Starting with what we do:
Jazz Day AZ Foundation believe in bringing Jazz to Mexico to better our relationship with our nearbor in Mexico. Our initial fundraising efforts will go 100% toward promotional materials to present to schools and community organizations within the Arizona as well as corporate sponsors. With this backing, we will then have the means to take 10 to15 Students to Alamos Sonora Mexico for 4 days feed them housing—pay for transportation
