2019 will be the tenth year.of The Hudson Valley Jazz Festival. A decade of celebrating jazz via the deep resource of local talent. Our goal; to highlight local jazz artist, highlighting America's musical art form and continue to support those who hire live music. The monies raised are used in the following ways: - to promote the series which is Aug 8 -11 - to supplement musicians pay which primarly comes from the supporting presenting venues. - a percentage will be donated by us to The Jazz Foundation of America which provides performance opportunities to emergency living expenses to medical care to housing, the Jazz Foundation offers a variety of programs and assistance for jazz and blues musicians in need. For this ten year celebration we hope to have an education program, young musicians showcase and multi-media as part of some jazz performances. No one from the this festival organization gets paid. Only the performing musicians. The support from the public, local media, cafe's, restaurants, other concert series' , the Village of Warwck and others has meant a great deal to us. Your help will help us to present new artists, as well as those folks have enjoyed over the years. Thanks for your time.
