Jazz Education Network Conference 2017

Today marks the first day of the 8th Annual Jazz Education Network Conference. This year, JEN is celebrating 100 years of recorded Jazz, and there’s no better place to celebrate this huge milestone than in New Orleans, the birthplace of Jazz. Our city’s roots are in Jazz and everything we do seems to happen to the rythym of that beat. This year’s JEN is in New Orleans for the first time, and this should be their biggest event ever. If you’re unfamilier with the Network, here’s what JEN is all about…

“The Jazz Education Network is dedicated to building the jazz arts community by advancing education, promoting performance, and developing new audiences.”
