The Colorado Jazz Group is a 501(c)3 nonprofit run by Front Range residents for Front Range residents. The mission of the Colorado Jazz Group is to reach the new generation of youth & inspire them to love the greatest of American inventions.
Partnering with local & international artists, the Colorado Jazz Group serves Front Range schools and offers jazz education free of charge. In 2017 a partnership with the Vail Jazz Goes to School program brought a highly successful 19 year curriculum to three area elementaries (Niwot Elementary, Sacred Heart of Boulder and Ryan Elementary).
The Colorado Jazz Group Lions was formed to bridge the gap between students and professionals. In the Niwot area as well as Colorado Springs, this mixed generational ensemble combines performance, practice, and top quality instruction.
The support of local foundations, businesses & individuals makes these opportunities possible. Sponsoring the Colorado Jazz Group places these brands in the hearts & minds of the thousands of Front Range citizens reached each year through marketing, the Jazz on 2nd Ave festival, and educational events held throughout the year.
Please consider sponsoring or donating to the Colorado Jazz Group to help inspire the next generation of jazz greats right here in the Front Range!
I thought the presentation was absolutely wonderful, and the students and other teachers enjoyed it immensely as well.

I liked how you showed us the drums.
I want to be in a marching band in high school.
My favorite part was when [the musicians] all played together.
I liked the sound of all the instruments playing together.
