Coupled with each performance of the Church Street Jazz Series the HJ Lang Foundation will support the two areas of focus with support of young musicians, strategic partnerships and musical educational activities.
During the Church Street Jazz Series produced by Blue Pyramid Productions LLC in partnership with Seven Venues, the national performing artists for the series will arrive a day early for their performances and be available for musical master classes and workshops with area middle and high school student musicians.
As the foundation acquires additional resources the number of student musicians and school music programs the foundation aims to support will expand through out the region. A long range goal is to fund a field trip for a group of the region’s student musicians to the Juilliard or Berkeley Schools of Music.
Given the multiple benefits that musical presentations and music education provides to the community at large, the HJ Lang Foundation hopes through its programs achieve its mission to provide support for less fortunate and gifted musicians in the arts, create opportunities for the community to participate and to preserve and expand numerous music genres.
