Communicating the essence and cultural significance of jazz while cultivating a new audience.
A priority of PDX Jazz’s mission is to provide free educational outreach to under-served and under-represented students in the greater Portland area and surrounding communities, with a focus on Title 1A funded schools. Our education programs extend across the entire student body, emphasizing an interdisciplinary appreciation of jazz and its African American roots from a historical, sociological, and cultural perspective.
