Every year we have a Saturday where high school jazz bands are invited to play for the public and get advice from professional musicians.
The Rotary Clubs of Thurston County initiated the Cool Jazz/Clean Water Event in 2001 as a way to raise funds for an International Humanitarian Project that included water projects in Malawi Africa. That first event combined the offering of a unique venue for area high school jazz bands to participate in an adjudicated music event, and an evening Jazz Concert for the community. The net proceeds from this ticketed and sponsored event of about $20,000 went to the water projects in Malawi.
