Letter from Harry Allen

Dear Jazz Fan

On Saturday night, October 21st, my All-Star New York Saxophone Band performed a sold-out concert in the Studio Theatre of the Toronto Centre for the Arts. The show was presented by Jazz Performance and Education Centre (JPEC) and the response was amazing.

When Rochelle Koskie, co-founder of JPEC, first contacted me about this concert, I did not know that JPEC was a non-profit organization. I learned that next year is JPEC's 10th anniversary. For the last 10 years they have been delivering top-notch jazz performances to people like you. But as a non-profit, that's not all they do. Every year, JPEC delivers approximately 35 workshops to students in underserved schools in Ontario including school with little or no music program. JPEC contacts teachers, organizes and pays the musicians and makes sure the kids have a great learning experience.

I also found out that even though JPEC sells tickets to its events, they assume a loss on every one because their purpose is not to make money but to keep jazz alive. Ticket prices are generally $35 and $20 for students. JPEC receives support from sponsors but to make sure they offer the best in performance and education, they need your help.

My purpose in writing you today is to ask you to consider supporting JPEC with a personal donation. Any amount is important and JPEC provides a tax receipt for nay amount over $25. Learning about JPEC first hand this month has convinced me that they are a strong supporter of jazz - from performance to education to preservation and well worth your time and money.

Thanks for listening. And if you didn't hear me on October 21, come on down to New York.

To donate, go to JPEC's website, www.jazzcentre.ca/supportJPEC.html and click on donations.

You may also send a cheque payable to JPEC.
