Rockefeller Foundation and JALC to bring jazz to disadvantaged schools

The Rockefeller Foundation and Jazz at Lincoln Center are teaming up on a new education outreach program for students in disadvantaged schools.

 

The program, titled “Jazz for Young People: The Resilient Tour,” will connect live jazz performances to an American history curriculum. It is expected to reach 9,000 students in 60 schools in five cities, including New Orleans; Chicago; St. Louis, Missouri; San Juan, Puerto Rico; and Sydney, Australia.

 

The initiative is an expansion of a partnership that was first forged in New York City public schools and will highlight jazz’s response to social struggle, with an emphasis on resilience. The tour is fueled by a $1 million foundation grant and led by Wynton Marsalis.
