Friends of HJO,
On Thursday September 13th, the Western Avenue Community Center (located at 400 West Union St., Bloomington IL) will host our third performance of our popular History of Jazz series. WACC has recently moved from 400 North Western Avenue, Bloomington IL to the former Crosswinds Community Church building.
We are excited to bring this music to young, inspiring minds (future musicians?) as well as educate and entertain all who wish to journey with us from the genre’s humble beginnings to the innovative modernizations of today. Attendees will also receive a history lesson in how jazz has been influenced by many other cultures, genres, and world events for a century’s time.
This event starts at 6:30 pm and is open to the public. The concert series is made possible through a Mirza Arts and Culture Grant from the Illinois Prairie Community Foundation. The foundation has our sincere thanks for their generosity and support of the arts in Bloomington/Normal.
We also wish to thank WACC, Jennifer Trimble, and their wonderful members for inviting us to their facility.
