Their Mission Statement

Kuumbwa Jazz provides opportunities for residents and visitors in the Santa Cruz area to enjoy and appreciate the full spectrum of jazz music through live performance and education. We present extraordinary regional, national and international musicians and provide educational programs for people of all ages.

Summary of Impact

Kuumbwa’s top accomplishments in 2009 include the following:   •    We presented 118 concerts that attracted 16,780 audience members and brought some of the biggest names in jazz to Santa Cruz, including Pharoah Sanders, Roy Hargrove, Chick Corea, John McLaughlin, Christian McBride, Kenny Garrett, Dianne Reeves, Branford Marsalis, Regina Carter, Cedar Walton, Julian Lage, Kim Nalley, Terence Blanchard, McCoy Tyner, Joshua Redman, Esperanza Spalding, Jean Luc Ponty, and Kurt Elling.   •    We began to offer half-price student tickets for one concert each month.  Based on a successful inaugural year, Kuumbwa looks forward to continuing the new program as a way to introduce more young audience members to the finest in jazz.   •    As in past years, the seniors in the 2008-09 Kuumbwa Jazz Honor Band decided to continue their educations and are now enrolled at San Francisco State University, Princeton University, Brandeis University, and The New School for Jazz and Contemporary Music in New York. All the Honor Jazz Band members kept playing music during the summer, including participating in such prestigious music camps as the Sequoia Chamber Music Workshop in Humboldt County; the Medieski Martin & Wood Jazz Camp; and the Stanford Jazz Camwe expanded our Artist Performances for Young Audiences series to include an Artists-in-the-Schools program.   Kuumbwa’s top goals for 2010 are as follows: (1) to honor jazz  by presenting live performances of its full spectrum of musical styles; (2) to provide jazz education opportunities for everyone and to nurture future audiences and musicians; and (3) to sustain organizational stability and fully realize our mission.
