Jazz Girls Day is an event specifically designed to invite girls and young women into the world of jazz. It includes games, clinics, jam sessions, performances, and panel discussions to help give girls a break from the male dominate jazz world they encounter on all other days. The whole point is to provide role models and a safe space so that girls can consider taking up jazz, and specifically, jazz improvisation.
The event was initiated by SFJazz five years ago and will be presented for the first time this year in Indiana on March 10 at the Indianapolis Central Library and March 12 at Merriman’s Playhouse in South Bend. Girls ages 12-18 are invited to participate FOR FREE thanks to the generous support of the Indiana Arts Commission, Yamaha Music, the Indianapolis Jazz Foundation, Casio, Altus Flutes, and Sam Ash Music.
