The Nashville Jazz Workshop (NJW), originally founded 20 years ago to amplify the sounds of jazz across Music City, celebrated the grand opening and official ribbon-cutting ceremony of their new location on Historic Buchanan St. last Saturday (July 24).
The workshop, known for celebrating jazz greats across the U.S., continues to offer world-class jazz education and performance in a supportive and creative environment for the community. In addition to offering jazz to all, NJW also seeks to make known that in Music City, “Jazz Lives Here Too.”
The acclaimed Jazz Cave will continue to host concerts, art exhibits, and educational classes for children to adults. As explained by NJW’s Executive Director Eric Dilts, the move to Buchanan St. seems more like home than their past address. In addition to the grand opening, NJW plans on hosting other invigorating events to engage the community.
The grand opening is only the start of a prosperous future for the North Nashville community and the exuberant plans NJW has for Music City. The organization has launched and partnered with various community events for the public including a monthly session in Hadley Park called Jazz AM, a Juneteenth citywide celebration, and countless shows and performances throughout the past year. NJW plans on hosting other events to engage the community, including a free community concert tonight (July 28) at 7 p.m.
