‘Round Midnight – Campaign for Expansion – Invest in the Future of Jazz

We are on the brink of something very exciting!

You may have heard the news that our campus will be expanding to meet the increased enrollment in both the Conservatory’s degree-granting program and the Jazzschool Community Music School. We are now in the process of acquiring an additional building located directly across the street from our current facility, and have launched a capital campaign – ’Round Midnight – to offset the cost of improvements to the space.

The new facility will house a state-of-the-art performance space, Rendon Hall, modeled after Minton’s Playhouse, the renowned Harlem-based nightclub founded in 1938 by tenor saxophonist Henry Minton. A beautiful sculptural representation of Thelonious Monk’s revered composition ‘Round Midnight will hang on a wall in Rendon Hall.

Invest In A Note

All parts of the composition – notes, clefs, time signature, bar lines – present opportunities for investment in our growth, which will help us underwrite the cost of the expansion.

See below for complete details, including an architectural drawing of the new campus, and how you can participate in this exciting new venture.

As of today (2/7/17) we only have 7 notes available, so please contract me directly to contribute to the capital campaign. 

Yours in Jazz,
