To all members of Greater Boston's jazz community:
Boston's new mayor, Marty Walsh, has made arts and culture a top priority and invited the city's arts community to share their ideas and dreams. The first opportunity to do that in person was the Dec. 14 City-Wide Town Hall Meeting at Roxbury Community College. The next is this Saturday, Jan. 25, at the Boston Public Library. We'll be there. We hope you will be too.
This is our chance to help ensure that jazz occupies an appropriate place on the Administration's agenda - a place that reflects the vital role the music plays in Boston's cultural life and the contribution it makes to the city's arts and entertainment economy. It's also a chance to build relationships with our counterparts in the broader arts community. We're all in this together!
Please show up, stand up, and speak up for jazz and the arts this Saturday. Click here to register to attend the meeting.
And before you go, please read the ideas submitted by JazzBoston on behalf of Greater Boston's jazz community after the Dec. 14 meeting.
