The Festival

With the success of our inaugural event in 2015, we are thrilled to present the 3rd Annual Asian American Music Festival . Last year, our second festival continued to build excitement from our initial event. Our festival guests were truly impressed by the accomplished performances of all our featured artists.

One of the main focus of the festival is to feature notable Asian American musicians who have succeeded in embracing jazz, an original American art form. We will also continue to showcase new and younger artists who deserve wider recognition.The festival is proud to provide opportunities to these Asian artists and showcase them with some of the more prominent artists and musicians today.

In keeping with our mission of assisting Asian Youth in their pursuit of American Jazz Music Culture, we will be presenting our first jazz music scholarship from the proceeds from last years event.
