THE STORY:

Did you know that Jazz or African American classical music is revered around the world as one of the only true art forms created in America? Did you know that musicians from Richmond and Virginia have been instrumental in the development of Jazz? For 36 years Richmond Jazz Society has been Virginia's Jazz service organization offering education programs for area students, music therapy for Senior Citizens and creating an audience of Jazz lovers to appreciate this American art form. RJS sponsors an award-winning Guest Educators Performance Series; maintains the Joe Kennedy, Jr. Scholarship Fund for students attending Virginia colleges; offers assistance to musicians needing help through its Eric E. Stanley Musicians Relief Fund; and, is the largest contractor of Jazz musicians in the area providing them jobs throughout the Commonwealth of Virginia. RJS is currently involved in a Jazz Preservation Project to honor those artists from Virginia who have made, and continue to make, significant contributions to Jazz. The VAJAZZ Resource Center and Exhibition Gallery will open in 2016 in the newly renovated Leigh Street Armory in historic Jackson Ward. Visitors will be able to enjoy vintage music, videotaped oral histories, photographs and other memorabilia of our Jazz pioneers when Richmond was known as "The Harlem of the South"!
