The North East Florida Jazz Association (NEFJA) is celebrating their 25th anniversary by presenting a one-day Jazz Festival featuring some of the best national and local musicians on the jazz scene today. The Jazz Festival will be from 1:30 p.m. until 9:00 p.m. on Saturday, April 28 at the Ormond Beach Center for the Performing Arts.
“For 25 years our mission has been to keep jazz alive in northeast Florida,” said NEFJA president Muriel McCoy. “This festival celebrates what we have been able to accomplish over the years. We’ve made live jazz accessible in our area by presenting almost 100 concerts showcasing some of the finest jazz musicians in the country and equally important, we’ve been able to provide 38 scholarships to some very talented students. These young people are the future of jazz.”
