BLU Jazz+ Masterclass Foundation is a new program developed by the founders of BLU Jazz+ Akron that is commited to the preservation of America's treasured artform of jazz.

BLU Jazz+ Masterclass Foundation brings "front-row" jazz education performance & mentorship opportunities to student musicians and art lovers alike through a series of masterclasses led by top visiting musicians from all over the world, along with other special programs throughout the year.

Recipient of a 2015 Knights Art Chllenage grant award by the Knight Foundation, BLU Jazz+ Masterclass Foundation  expands upon the essence of Akron's award-winning live jazz destination, BLU Jazz+, named one of the "Best Jazz Venues in the World" by DownBeat Magazine in February, 2016.

With the help of donations from gracious members of the community like you, BLU Jazz+ Masterclass Foundation  will be able to offer valuable community-driven programs such as:
•  BLU Jazz+ Jam Session w/ Theron Brown
•  BLU Jazz+ Student All-Stars Concert Series
•  BLU Jazz+ Big Band Residency ft. Sam Blakeslee Large Group
•  BLU Jazz+ Marquee Artist Masterclasses - an opportunity for serious students and aficionados of jazz to engage with top artists from around the world in the intimate setting of BLU Jazz+ for lessons on personal & ensemble techniques, entrepreneurship, self-promotion, how to book a gig, stories from the road, Q&A with the artist, and much more.

You are a vital piece of the puzzle and your time, energy, participation, and generosity are essential components to the success of the BLU Jazz+ Masterclass Foundation.   We appreciate your participation and any contribution you are able to make in furthering live jazz among our up and coming student talent!
