Spenard Jazz Fest 2015
Spenard Jazz Fest is a multidisciplinary arts festival inspired by and celebrating jazz music. Spenard Jazz Fest nurtures creativity and collaboration across multiple art forms and in particular the creation of original work by established and emerging composers in Alaska. Now in it's 8th year, Spenard Jazz Fest will run aseries of events between May 30th and Summer Solstice 2015
Spenard JazzFest (SJF) is a grassroots organization run by volunteers. SJF addresses the expressed need in our community for a performance platform for original work in the broad genre of jazz (read: traditional or unconventional collaborative creation of art and music containing elements of improvisation), a nourishing environment for creativity, an appreciative and attentive audience, and the ever present need for good music and good vibes! After 7 years of running a successful ever- evolving creative festival SJF is consolidating its programming, focusing on original music and audience relations. We are still building our guarantee fund for musicians. It is extremely important that we follow up on last year's success in paying EVERYBODY who performed.
Thank you to the Atwood Foundation for making this possible !
