OUR MISSION is to connect and to heal
through music in our changing world.
JAZZ AND CLASSICS FOR CHANGE (JCfC) was founded in the summer of 2019 through a collaboration between Gili Melamed-Lev, concert pianist and educator, and Joe Gold, jazz musician and film composer, with the idea of bringing a sense of hope through inspiring music, performed by outstanding musicians.
We offer the highest caliber music, not solely for our joy, but also to help illumine our humanity. For this is our mission: To connect and to heal through music in our changing world.
Jazz and Classics for Change is a gift, as is everything that flows from the realm of the arts. As a 501(c)3 charitable organization, it relies on gifts from many sources. We hope you will join us in supporting the vitality of this new artistic and social initiative so its life flourishes and enhances the life of our community. Each gift, no matter the size, is valued and appreciated.
