VIRGINIA JAZZ: THE EARLY YEARS
September 19, 2017 – April 30, 2018
The Valentine Museum – 1015 East Clay Street – Richmond VA
Richmond Jazz Society, Incorporated created a multi-media exhibition that showcased Virginians who made a significant contribution to the development of Jazz as an American art form – from the early rhythms of the music’s birth at the turn of the 20th century to the multifaceted vibrations leading to the music’s modern sound.
RJS’ Jazz Preservation Initiative continually seeks to document Virginia’s Jazz history with the objective of bringing to the forefront the achievements of those individuals who have made a significant impact on Jazz throughout history.
Major support for this project was provided by:
THE CABELL FOUNDATION
Richmond Free Press
