Over the past 15 years, Living Jazz has provided FREE music education to Oakland public elementary schools serving high percentages of low-income families (Title One) through the Living Jazz Children’s Project (LJCP). Over 5,000 2-3rd graders have now benefited from LJCP. Living Jazz believes that access to music education is a profound and necessary component of every child’s education and development.
Living Jazz invites you to celebrate unity and freedom in our 19th annual musical tribute to Dr. Martin Luther King Jr - In the Name of Love.

The showcase features much needed inspirational performances by musicians and speakers from the Bay Area and beyond. 2020 has been a tumultuous year to say the least. We aim to enter 2021 honoring the path that Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. set us upon, in search of freedom, unity, equity, and peace.
