YOUTH WORKSHOP ON FRIDAY OF FESTIVAL (led by Wycliffe Gordon)
For 28 years we have been presenting our annual Suncoast Jazz Festival, which is dedicated to preserving and promoting jazz, the only true American art form.
The festival provides opportunities for both professional musicians from all over the US and Canada as well as aspiring young musicians from our community to perform and share their music with enthusiastic and very appreciative audiences here in Clearwater FL.
Because of the generosity of a lot of individual sponsors and attendees, the Festival has been able to give back to the community over the past 28 years in the form of financial support of programs for aspiring young jazz musicians.
Continuing support will ensure the future of the festival and our involvement with youth. This is your legacy.
