The SPMA Midtown Vanguard Jazz Series (2018) kicked off December 2017 in Midtown Sacramento at the E. Claire Raley Studios for the Performing Arts (CLARA) located at 2420 N Street. Established musicians, up and comers and local students (instructed by established jazz musicians) performing at least one and up to two live shows per month throughout the entire year, including “Three Nights of Jazz at MVJ.”
SPMA’s vision is to create an environment where students and performing artists can meet for the study of music arts education, performance and related art forms. The Project will advance SPMA’s vision by providing a platform for Jazz Artists to benefit from their performances. Midtown Vanguard Jazz is an Artist Series, for the Benefit of the Artists.
The SPMA Midtown Vanguard Jazz Series has become a model for community engagement, artistic showcasing, and enhancement of music education in the Sacramento region. We will work hand in hand with local Jazz Artists to facilitate their shows.
