Girl Power Programs
October 4, 2011

For 15 years, I've taught thousands of children about the contributions of women musicians. I love watching their eyes light up, while singing the songs that were made popular by Ella Fitzgerald and others like her. Our organization, Women in Jazz South Florida, Inc. visits schools in the tri-county area bringing programs to enhance the musical studies of students. We would like to bring our programs to Girl Power in the near future.

WOMEN IN JAZZ SOUTH FLORIDA INC
March 30, 2011

In 2007, I founded this organization to promote women musicians, globally. Since then, we have recruited 135 members, 60 are musicians, 24 are men and 6 are students. We have completed many grant-funded projects with women, men, students and seniors. We have had two Board of Directors. The music of 10 fabulous female composers has been archived on our first compilation CD released in January 2011. Presently, we are promoting our Jazz For Peace fundraiser with Rick DellaRatta on Saturday, May 14, 2011, at ArtServe, 1350 E. Sunrise Blvd., Fort Lauderdale, FL to raise funds for a tour to Italy in June 2011, to meet with Donne in Musica, an organization that produces musical concerts and archives women's music. We hope to create a cultural exchange between Fiuggi, Italy, and Lauderhill, FL, where a new performing arts center will be completed in 2012. For more information on WIJSF, go to our website: www.wijsf.org and become a member or donate to our cause to promote women musicians, globally.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Besides performing, I've produced several events in the past four years engaging women musicians. I produced the first compilation CD with 10 fabulous female composers. See: www.wijsf.com/JazzComp1.htm. I've raised over $40,000 in the past 4 years to carry on the work of the organization.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Recruit more members and identify donors to raise money for concerts, archived music compilations and continue the work to promote women musicians.
