Festival Description

Since its inception, in association with “August Jazz Month Houston”, the Houston International Jazz Festival has placed Houston in the spotlight as the site of the nation’s only Jazz Festival focusing on international Jazz musicians. The mission of the Festival is to provide a unique cultural program that exposes Houstonians to musicians from outside the United States of America. All proceeds from the festival go toward funding Jazz Education Inc ‘s educational programs,” Jazz & Poetry Series” and “Summer Jazz Workshop.” The Jazz and Poetry program serves more than 30,000 elementary school children, and through two locations, the Summer Jazz Workshop trains over 100 teenage musicians. Other goals of the Festival are to provide scholarships for underserved children attending the Summer Jazz Workshop and establish an endowment for the long-term growth of Jazz Education Inc.
