February 17, 2019
1. The Board of Directors is planning a Town Hall meeting in the near future. This will be an opportunity for you to meet the new Board, hear plans for the future of the Las Vegas Jazz Society, and discuss areas of concern to you.
2. The first annual LVJS Southern Nevada College Scholarship was announced at the Essentially Ellington Festival on January 31st. One new and one continuing student scholarship in the amount of $250 will be awarded to help defer educational expenses at a southern Nevada accredited college or university jazz program. Scholarship information and applications are available on the website and will be sent to area high school jazz band instructors and to CSN and UNLV instructors for dissemination to their students.
We want to thank those members who have made generous donations and we encourage our members to consider giving toward this and other planned educational endeavors. There are two ways to donate: When you renew your membership you can add an additional donation in increments or you can press the DONATE button found in numerous places on the website. The latter will take you directly to a PayPal donation page where you can add any amount.
3. Michael Spicer, Vice President of the Board, will debut his monthly podcast on the LVJS website in the coming weeks. By definition, a podcast is “an episodic series of digital audio or video files which a user can download to hear.” Think of a radio show you can listen to whenever you want. Mr. Spicer’s first guest is Uli Geissendoerfer. Watch the website for this new installation.
