Event Details

Mayor Sylvester Turner The Houston International Jazz Festival will celebrate its 27th year hosted by Jazz Education Incorporated, August 13th 2017 with our Annual Mayors Scholarship Jazz Brunch. Music Lovers, Jazz enthusiasts, and Houstonians will be treated to an exciting, music filled weekend.

Mayor Sylvester Turner will join us in celebrating the 27th anniversary by conducting our Summer Jazz Workshop All Star Orchestra at the Annual Mayors Scholarship Jazz Brunch on August 13, 2017.

Mayor Turner will conduct the orchestra using the infamous baton once used by the famous conductor Arturo Toscanini to conduct the NBC Symphony Orchestra. Arturo Toscanini is considered one of the most admired conductors during the first half of the 20th century. Since the baton’s donation by The Strake Foundation former Mayors such as Brown, Lanier, White and Parker have all conducted our students.

The Houston International Jazz Festival helps to fund music education for young aspiring musicians, and the programs that Jazz Education hosts year around. Don’t miss Maestro Mayor Turner August 13, 2017 at the Wortham Theatre as guest conductor at the Annual Mayors Scholarship Jazz Brunch.

About the Mayor’s Scholarship Jazz Brunch In 1994, when the Mayor’s Jazz Brunch was first held, Houston’s former Mayor Bob Lanier wrote, “Houston is a culturally rich city with an international character that lends itself to the success of the Houston International Jazz Festival. I salute Council Member Judson Robinson and Jazz Education Inc.’s Bubbha Thomas for their vision and leadership for the Festival. I extend congratulations and thanks to their committee for the support of the brunch.” This event is part of Jazz Education’s fundraising efforts, supporting its children’s music education programs, the H-E-B Tournament of Champions Summer Jazz Workshop and the Jazz & Poetry Series. In making his case for the brunch Lanier continued, “We support educational programs for youth in our city. The study of music fosters creative, critical thinking skills, and academic achievement.”

Former Mayor Lee P. Brown, who hosted the brunch every year during his six years in office delighted in the announcement of the Festival and the brunch, saying, “It allows another opportunity to showcase the city and all that it has to offer.” In 2004, Mayor Bill White kept the Mayor’s Jazz Brunch tradition going. He said the purpose of the event is a “good thing” for the City of Houston. In 2016, the Honorable Mayor Sylvester Turner took over the reins and awarded three college bound former SJW students with the Summer Jazz Workshop Scholarship Award. Mayor Turner is excited to continue the tradition again this year. In addition to being a major fundraiser for Jazz Education, the Brunch is also one of the most popular events for the Jazz Festival.
