Jazzmania was a great party for a great cause!

This past Saturday, October 21, was the Nashville Jazz Workshop’s annual jazz party and fundraiser, JAZZMANIA.

Great music was the centerpiece, as a large and happy crowd enjoyed music from Wendy Moten, The Pat Coil Trio w/ Bob Sheppard, and a Nashville Youth Jazz Ensemble small group. Party-goers were well-fed, with delicious fare from The Clean Plate Club and beverages courtesy of Lipman Brothers.

The focus of this year’s Jazzmania was to raise funds for the Jazz Workshop’s community programs, which include Jazz AM, Jazz on the Move, Jazz in the Park, and music for Juneteenth festivities. An outpouring of support came from generous donors during the “Fund A Need” portion of the evening to get us part way toward the financial goal. There’s still time for YOU to join in and give your support — CLICK HERE TO DONATE

Thanks to everyone who came and contributed and to all of you who sent (or will send) your contributions!

Covid Safety
The Nashville Jazz Workshop no longer recommends masks for all patrons, and we have returned to full seating capacity of 76. We do, however, invite patrons to wear masks should they feel more comfortable doing so or if they have safety concerns. If the public health situation changes we will adjust policies as needed.

Nashville Jazz Workshop programs are supported in part by Metro Arts and the Tennessee Arts Commission. This program is being supported, in part, by federal award number SLFRP5534 awarded to the State of Tennessee by the U.S. Department of the Treasury.
