ABOUT

THE PROGRAM

Founders Candice Reyes and Abel Mireles are supporting Emerging Artists from their hometown El Paso and Juarez area, by connecting them with performance and music educational opportunities outside of their communities.    

 

We believe that jazz is the perfect platform for students, professionals, and audiences to collaborate, listen and support each other while building communities. We are committed not only to provide students with the highest standards of jazz education but also to follow a path of citizens formation.
