Mission Statement

It is the mission of the Clearwater Jazz Holiday to be the leading proponent of jazz entertainment and education in Florida through the annual presentation of a world-class, live music festival in Clearwater, Florida during the third week of October and to promote tourism to Pinellas County as a key component of this celebration.

Description

The Clearwater Jazz Holiday is an internationally recognized attraction through its public, corporate and charitable partnerships that are used to build artistic excellence,
public awareness, a strong sense of community and educational programs aimed at keeping this uniquely American musical form vibrant.

Did you know that the main mission of the Clearwater Jazz Holiday Foundation is to support music & arts education in the Tampa Bay area?

For more than 30 years, CJH has provided scholarships to talented, local students interested in pursuing jazz education. The CJH Foundation also brings resources and opportunities to local students through education outreach, internships and intensive jazz education sessions with international recording artists.

The CJH Youth Outreach Initiative is designed to bring live, interactive jazz music to schools in our community. This year, we visited 15 area middle schools and presented a dynamic workshop designed to engage students with the culture, history and feel of live jazz music.

Working with highly regarded educator, Frank Williams, the CJH Foundation presents performances that mix historical narration with live jazz standards. This combination becomes a unique journey for students, filled with cultural the diversity that is American Jazz. Education and entertainment happen simultaneously as our Outreach Program continues to reach new audiences in an effort to ensure that the art form will survive in our community.
