As you may know, Folsom has one of the highest rated middle and high school jazz programs in the country. Folsom High, in particular, has played the Monterey Jazz Fest, as well as festivals and concerts overseas to sell out crowds.
Other than in the schools, however, there is not a single jazz venue in Folsom.
We draw big crowds at our summer concerts in Palladio, Sutter St and Lion's Park, but those are usually County, Blues and Cover Bands.
I'm trying to find out if there is support for public jazz performances other than in the schools.
By that I mean professional musicians.
So, if we were able to get a series of jazz concerts in the park this summer, would you go?
Do you go to the other free concerts?
