The purpose of Women in Jazz Association is to perpetuate the appreciation and performance of traditional jazz vocal and instrumental music. As vocal jazz is a declining art form, this purpose is charitable -- the protection and preservation of a valuable art form called jazz; that is, vocal jazz. It is through concerts, educational workshops, and performance opportunities of singers that provide the means to the end -- perpetuate vocal jazz music. The Association also understands the importance of investing in our future through Cultural and Performing Arts, as well as, digital media. The Women in Jazz Association, Inc. has solicited the support of the City of Austin, the National Forum for Black Public Administrators, and other community organizations to help them make a difference in our local and surrounding communities.
