Greetings from the Tennessee Valley Jazz Society-Huntsville (TVJS).
At the end of December 2021, TVJS fiscal year, we will have celebrated 40 years of community service by presenting quality education and world-class entertainment that positively impacts the economy. However, from 2019 until the present, the pandemic has negatively impacted the TVJS, like many other non-profits 501(c)(3) arts agencies. To survive, TVJS has had to “improvise” to operate and stay in existence while still supporting local artists and educators with limited funds.
Without any question, due to the pandemic, these last few years have been the most challenging of TVJS 40 years. So, unfortunately, we were not able to celebrate our 40 years of community service as planned.
For over 35 years, the Annual Jazz-N-June Festival on the Mountain has been one of TVJS’s most significant events. In addition, since 1998, “Jazz Education is Cool in the School Initiative” has been TVJS’s most educational project. As a result, over 35,800 students, facilities, and staff benefited in the North Alabama area schools and community.
Yes, world-class musicians, Curtis Lundy and Bobby Watson, are partnering with TVJS to celebrate our 40th-year Anniversary with a world-class jazz concert, Friday, October 29, 2021, at The Cooper House.
The Theme for this year: Celebrating TVJS 40th Anniversary – While Preparing for the next 40 years.
The Tennessee Valley Jazz Society requests your financial support to present this historical project and help us to achieve our goals.
To complete the 40th-Anniversary Celebration and prepare for the future of TVJS, we’re aiming to raise 50 thousand dollars to fund the TVJS Jazz Education Initiative.
We look forward to hearing from you, and of course, if there are any questions you may have, please get in touch with me as soon as possible.
We look forward to your participation
