The MONTCLAIR JAZZ FESTIVAL is an extraordinary cultural event and we are honored to return as the Presenting Sponsor. The MONTCLAIR JAZZ FESTIVAL is a unique experience where world-class artists and students share America’s homegrown art form and demonstrate the tremendous impact of the JAZZ HOUSE KiDS program.

EXECUTIVE PRODUCER

JAZZ HOUSE KiDS has been swinging doors open for 17 years, and our emerging musicians are soloing and singing their way to greatness. Our year-round programs help young people from all backgrounds gain an artistic edge through music, mentoring, education and apprenticeship. Through pre-professional musical training along with community engagement and education programs, we use jazz as an effective teaching tool to enhance academic achievement, dedication, and teamwork and cultivate tomorrow’s global citizens.
