We support learning and performing music, as a lifelong pleasure. Our funding provides tutoring, workshops, and ensemble opportunities for students, as well as gig opportunities for working jazz instrumentalists and vocalists.
Local students with an ear for music and a heart full of jazz can audition and qualify for awards from Lake Anna Jazz, to help fund musical ambitions and/or further study.
Listening, on its own, is great, but there’s nothing like being present at a live performance to watch a unique, quality product being created on the spot through a gifted ensemble’s labor of love.
The best taxpayers are the ones that come to your community, pay taxes on their meals, souvenirs, entertainment, and lodging — and then go back where they came from. High-quality jazz performances will bring folks to see and hear what Lake Anna has to offer.
Jazz is sophisticated, but it can also be overflowing with simple joy: a fascinating display of talent, mixed with years of disciplined study, that the whole family can appreciate.
People of diverse backgrounds find a unifying bond in the appreciation of a jazz performance. You can bet there will be an enthusiastic but respectful audience at Lake Anna Jazz events.
