Dear Friend of Jazz:
Our thirteenth annual season of offering free weekly jazz concerts at John Ball Zoo's band shell is fast approaching. Jazz at the Zoo has been a great success with our regular audiences of over 1200 fans enjoying local and regional musicians in a relaxed outdoor setting.
Our Summer Monday evening concerts begin June 3rd and end August 12th. In keeping with our efforts to promote jazz in the high schools, our opening show will feature the Northview High School Jazz Band. A complete listing of performers will be posted on our website (www.wmichjazz.org) and in our newsletter.
Once again we are reaching out to past and potential future supporters to help us fund this endeavor. Please see the sponsorship form and consider a level of support that works for you. Since we are an all-volunteer tax exempt organization under section 501(c) (3) of the Internal Revenue Code, all contributions are tax deductible.
Each donor will be listed in our newsletter and Jazz at the Zoo programs. You may also dedicate your contribution in someone's memory. Please advise us if you know of someone who might be interested in a corporate sponsorship.
We hope you will help us in our continuing efforts to promote live jazz in the Grand Rapids area.
John Miller, President
West Michigan Jazz Society
