Jazz Artists of Charleston will kick off the new year by presenting the inaugural Charleston International Jazz Festival, Jan. 22-25, 2015, in Charleston, South Carolina. The festival will illuminate the Holy City’s storied jazz tradition and celebrate today’s vibrant jazz community with a diverse showcase of educational programs and live jazz performances featuring local, national and international jazz artists. Events, venues, artists and additional details are being finalized, and tickets go on sale mid-December. The festival is produced, presented and managed by Jazz Artists of Charleston (JAC), a nonprofit organization whose mission is to promote musical awareness and education, including the recognition and preservation of the history of jazz in Charleston through performances, special events and educational outreach. Established in 2008, JAC has earned a reputation for presenting, producing and advocating for all things jazz and the artists who bring this music to life in dynamic ways. JAC is proud to partner with the Charleston Area Convention and Visitors Bureau and many other key community partners for the inaugural Charleston International Jazz Festival.
