TESTIMONIALS OF SUPPORT
This letter is in support of U-JAM in the Victoria BC area.
This organization has been active over the past decade facilitating actual involvement in the creation and maintenance of jazz education and music making opportunities for the community of Victoria BC. Performances, jam-sessions, discussion groups and educational ensembles have flourished under the auspices of this organization.
I have been gratified, as an educator, to see the excitement of young people who have had the opportunity to study with seasoned artists from the community as well as those on tour who have spent time with these young people.
The organization fills a tremendous void in the community between those artists who perform regularly in the Jazz idiom and those who want to be informed audiences.
U-JAM builds that conduit.
The authentic educational opportunities provided by U-JAM give experiential insight into the Jazz art form that no other organization in this city provides.
