The Miami International Jazz Fest (MIJF) Board of Directors proudly established the Miami International Jazz Fest™ (a 501(c)3 corporation) to showcase a smorgasbord of jazz performers in a yearly jazz festival. MIJF will present diverse jazz expressions and artists throughout the Greater Miami area in venues managed by various cities within Miami – Dade County.
Our program will reach out to the local academic community, both students and professors, so that future music stars can participate in Jazz Fest activities. We will provide volunteer opportunities which will place student participants in direct contact with professional musicians. We aspire to provide unique opportunities that will give music students the ability to partake in all facets of our event. In time, these opportunities will lead to long-term mentorships that cultivate local musical talent and will expose young musicians to the practical realities of the music business.
MIJF’s President and Board members are professional musicians and businessmen who have a long list of outstanding accomplishments in music production, live performances, and recorded albums. All have succeeded at the local, national and international levels. Our Board is primed to produce a first-class international festival that showcases Miami as the ideal destination that jazz lovers worldwide and within our community can appreciate for years to come.
