Michigan Jazz Festival
July 15 @ 12:00 pm - 9:00 pmFree
The mission of the Michigan Jazz Festival, Inc., is to promote and encourage public interest, appreciation and support for jazz as a musical art form and a cultural resource. Toward this end, the organization will conduct an annual day-long Jazz Festival in the Southeastern area of Michigan. Various jazz artists and groups will be invited to perform. The event will be open to the public without cost to those attending.
Performing artists will be selected by the Board of Directors or a committee appointed by the Board. It is anticipated that approximately five thousand people, representing a wide range of ages and backgrounds, will attend each annual Festival.
To the extent that it is necessary to compensate performing artists in order to insure a high level of quality and diversity of the music, the Michigan Jazz Festival, Inc., will raise funds in order to pay performers a reasonable fee. Sponsors will be sought to help defray this cost along with other necessary expenses. It is anticipated that the organization may sell commemorative items such as t-shirts, caps, etc. All those who help with the activities, other than the performing musicians, will be volunteers.
