THE EXCHANGE LIVE SESSIONS

The Exchange Live Sessions is our efforts to Express + Discuss + Connect with full-time musicians and supporters of jazz and their music, as well as ask the questions that encounter challenges in the music industry, especially during these difficult times. These conversations and listening discussions are interactive with our viewers and listeners on Facebook & Youtube Live.

VIRTUAL JAZZ SESSIONS

The Jazz Exchange is transforming the concept of live performances into a virtual experience for audiences to connect around the world. The purpose of our Virtual Jazz Sessions is to push boundaries to create solutions during challenging times and still inspire jazz musicians, vocalists, composers, arrangers, audio engineers and video editors to collaborate virtually and still be creative.

EDUCATIONAL PROGRAM

The Jazz Exchange Education Program builds bridges for a dynamic community of emerging artists and leaders from El Paso and Juarez area. We connect our students to organizations and institutions such as JAZZ HOUSE KiDS that expand their opportunities with a diverse community of like-minded peers, a safe environment, mentorship through some of the top artists in the jazz industry, and a supportive path to excellence. Learning happens in communities and participants who are part of our education program develop communication and life skills.
