Review for JAZZ BRIDGE PROJECT INC, Glenside, PA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Jazz Bridge is an arts service organization that responds to the needs of greater Philadelphia-area Jazz and blues musicians in times of health, financial, legal and other crises, providing individual (confidential) support while promoting America's indigenous art-form through neighborhood concerts series across the region at five different venues from October through May each year. Without enthusiastic volunteers, Jazz Bridge could not continue. Dedicated people are always needed to participate in fundraising, outreach and program development activities. So if you really want to make a difference that truly matters, please contact them!

Review for JAZZ BRIDGE PROJECT INC, Glenside, PA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I am privy to a lot of JazzBridge.org's concerns as (full disclosure) I am a board member. But I must say that these two brave women - Suzanne Cloud and Wendy Simon - work tirelessly on behalf of the greater Philadelphia Jazz and Blues community. They agreed "that's enough!" after seeing too many times the unfair circumstances musicians must encounter in times of crisis. I have witnessed first-hand the relentless determination and complete commitment to their goals, as well as their joy when any small victory for an individual is achieved. I cannot cite specific examples, as confidentiality is one of the strategies that make JazzBridge a viable institution...but most importantly, the total selflessness of their mission should be an inspiration to lovers of the arts everywhere.
