MAKING A MARK: CHURCH STRET JAZZ SERIES FOUNDER SUPPORTING STUDENTS IN NORFOLK
Lang builds an impressive lineup of musicians to sell tickets to the annual Church Street Jazz Series concerts.
"If you like pop, you can still like jazz. If you're a gospel person, you can still listen to jazz," said Lang, "because they all have elements of jazz in them." But Lang said the best seats in the concert series are occupied by local students. Through the H. J. Lang Foundation, Lang's nonprofit, middle and high school students take classes and workshops hosted by jazz artists and meet industry leaders. Proceeds from concert ticket sales and donations go to the foundation. And at each concert, the nonprofit surprises one student with a brand-new instrument.
