Clearwater Jazz Holiday’s History of Jazz Outreach Program engages professional musicians to share the story of Jazz through live, interactive musical experiences.
By Spring 2020, the Program had reached nearly 30,000 students in approximately 60 Tampa Bay area schools and has evolved to also bring meaningful experiences to schools and organizations serving at risk students, people of all ages with special needs, neurodiversities, and autism, as well as older adults in senior living communities and memory care centers.
Frank T. Williams III, a 40-year + educator, band director, clinician, author, adjudicator, and composer, is a long-time CJH education partner, important to the development of many CJH Outreach programs.
In 2020, CJH launched its STOP-TIME SERIES with Frank Williams to complement the History of Jazz Outreach Program by creating a comprehensive visual and audio History of Jazz archive delivered in Frank’s one-of-a-kind style.
