It's that time again!! Mark your calendars for Jazzmania 2014, the annual fall jazz party and fundraiser. The event will again be held this year in Liberty Hall at The Factory in Franklin and will happen Saturday, October 25, from 5:00 to 9:00 pm
Music will be provided by some of the area's finest jazz artists. This year's featured artists are Latin jazz band El Movimiento and Annie Sellick and The Hot Club of Nashville. Also this year we're delighted to have celebrity emcees Doyle and Debbie, of The Doyle & Debbie Show.
The event will include a live and silent auction, with unique and desirable items that include vacation packages, tickets to top events, special dinner packages, in-home concerts, artwork by the city’s top artists, and much more.
The signature feature of our silent auction is Small Works – a collection of small canvases with paintings by some of the area's top artists, produced especially for this event. Guests will enjoy browsing the works and placing bids on their top picks in fun competition with other patrons - the ultimate proceeds going entirely to benefit the mission of the school.
The Honorary Event Chairperson for Jazzmania this year is Rob Gordon, President and CEO of WPLN, Nashville Public Radio, and a longtime supporter and Advisory Board Member of the Jazz Workshop. In addition to his almost-20 years at Nashville Public Radio, Rob served as Jazz Program Officer for the National Endowment for the Arts and worked with National Public Radio.
