Jazz From Home: Geary Moore
Wednesday, June 24 at 7pm join us for “Jazz From Home,” a curated series of streaming live performances from some of the city’s finest jazz artists. This week features guitarist Geary Moore.
During this uncertain time, we have temporarily suspended our public programming and turned to delivering online classes and streamed performances. While this allows us to continue bringing you great jazz, revenue from these virtual activities is not enough to pay our bills and we need additional support from our community of supporters.
Geary asks that any tips you are able to givr go directly to the Nashville Jazz Workshop. You can donate here
