The 2011 NYC WINTER JAZZFEST will feature over 60 different jazz groups during the Arts Presenters (APAP) conference. Similar to past years the festival will provide an opportunity for artists to showcase in front of presenters, promoters, talent buyers, educators, musicians and avid fans. Over 5000 arts professionals will be in New York City for the annual Association of Performing Arts Presenters (APAP) conference from January 7-11. As there will be hundreds of showcases scheduled throughout the weekend around the city both at the Hilton Hotel and in alternative venues, Winter Jazzfest offers APAP conference attendees, and the general public, the opportunity to experience the best of today’s new live jazz and experimental music in club venue settings.
Currently new jazz groups are under represented, yet they are culturally essential to the continued development and future of jazz and the cultivation of new audiences for jazz. Jazz artists need support and exposure to the significant institutional booking forum that the Arts Presenters conferences represent. Winter Jazzfest is pleased to offer a forum for presenters and music enthusiasts to experience and support the future of jazz.
The 2011 NYC WINTER JAZZFEST will again feature showcases with guest curators Meghan Stabile of Revive Music Group and Adam Schatz of Search & Restore. In line with the mission of Winter Jazzfest, Stabile and Schatz continue to invigorated NYC’s jazz scenes in their own ways by promoting and supporting young and deserving new jazz artists while bringing increasingly growing audiences to the music. Kenny’s Castaways will stage the Search & Restore showcase while Zinc Bar will house the Revive Music Group showcase.
Revive Da Live Showcase will take place on Jan. 8th 2011 from 7pm-4am at Sullivan Hall. See flyer below for our line up & schedule, please also visit www.winterjazzfest.com for the entire festival line up at all venues plus ticket info.
