The First Annual Baltimore
Jazz Composers Showcase

While Baltimore is known to have a rich jazz heritage, the purpose is of the Jazz Composers Showcase is to make the community aware of living composers in the greater Baltimore area who are adding to that heritage, via the creation of new jazz music. Having an annual event will not only acknowledge our creators of jazz, but will also stimulate the creation of new works, add to Baltimore's ongoing cultural renaissance, and bring greater awareness nationally of our efforts to be a leader at the dawning of this new millennium.
