Local jazz initiative wins grant

Sunday, February 28, 2010

The Humanities Council of South Carolina has awarded a $6,750 grant to the Charleston Jazz Initiative to help fund the work of several internationally regarded jazz historians, musicians and scholars who will participate in the CJI’s Legends Festival, a presentation of the 2010 Piccolo Spoleto Festival.

CJI’s co-founder Dr. Karen Chandler, an associate professor of arts management in the College of Charleston School of the Arts, will serve as the project director for the grant. She and colleague Jack McCray are producers of the Legends Festival, working with a 30-member group of Charleston arts and cultural leaders.
