The SPMA Midtown Vanguard Jazz Series (2018) is set to begin January 2018 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) will be performing at least one and up to two live shows per month throughout the entire year. There will also be a large scale jazz music festival tentatively scheduled to take place in October 2018 on the CLARA grounds and in the CLARA auditorium to showcase professional musical collaborations and student growth that is developed throughout the year.     


The SPMA Midtown Vanguard Jazz Series (2018) will become a model for community engagement, artistic showcasing, and enhancement of music education in the Sacramento region. We will work hand in hand with Capital Jazz Project to facilitate studio time to teach the art of jazz to young performers weekly. The series and festival will be a platform for these students to become involved year round in jazz as a performing art.
