ColaJazz: Jazz Appreciation
ColaJazz’s swinging Little Big Band returns! This medium-sized ensemble has presented a wide variety of large ensemble music from Big Band repertoire to classic small group sound. Join us before the performance for a Q&A with the band.
The ColaJazz Foundation is dedicated to grow, support and promote jazz in the Midlands through events, education, recordings, resources, and advocacy in order to create a thriving culturally rich community.
ColaJazz provides access to world-class musicians, supports our own, invests in our future, and does everything we can to ensure jazz has a home here in Columbia, SC. The ColaJazz community is comprised of musicians, educators, patrons, students, and anyone who desires to support jazz and develop our capital city’s cultural heritage.
ColaJazz remains committed to jazz which reveals the best of American culture. Jazz music from the beginning has taught us to persevere with intelligence, style, and grace, be creative, work with others, celebrate differences, respect tradition while breaking new ground, be our best selves while advancing the group, and jazz brings people together.
