The Keepin’ Jazz Alive Gala is a highly anticipated annual event celebrating the spirit of jazz that raises funds to advance the art form of jazz in Charleston. Proceeds directly support our performance and education programs and help cultivate a community where all people can experience the joy of music and understand and appreciate the value and legacy of jazz.
