"We are back for our fifth season with a new name, new website, new times, new venues and renewed energy. With great excitement, we would like to welcome you to our 2016 season!"
Pippi Ardennia, Founder and President, PipJazz Foundation
The mission of PipJazz Foundation, a nonprofit organization, is to bring world class music to the community in a family friendly environment where young people can be inspired to fully engage in the arts.
"I love the mission of our organization, especially what it does for our youth. They are able to perform and learn from professional musicians, these musicians become mentors and leaders for them. I have observed how our student artists' musical and social skills are enhanced during their tenure with the PipJazz Youth Program. With self-confidence strengthened, they are able to develop their "own voice," to use Pippi's words. PipJazz is very near and dear to my heart. I am so happy to play a role in its continuation and its introduction to an ever-increasing audience."
