Incomparable Passion for Jazz, Arts and Culture
We believe jazz isn't just a genre of music. Jazz is a unique art form, and culture rooted in a freedom of expression and life style.
FMG Financial and WCCA TV is proud to present the annual CENTRAL MASS JAZZ FEST 2020
Proceeds of the Central Mass Jazz Fest 2020 are to benefit non-profit community media WCCA TV and this year, to support the St John's Food Bank.
All CMJF SHOWS ARE FREE TO THE PUBLIC thanks to the generosity of our funders and sponsors.
Jazz has much in common with the WCCA TV mission. CMJF is created by Mauro DePasquale with the vision to promote community public access media and Jazz. WCCA TV mission empowers a great diversity of people and organizations, ensures everyone's voice is elevated and has impact. We provide the tools and technology and knowledge for all to learn, create and connect.
You find these same principals in action on the jazz stage. We can hear each instrument working together to build and create continuity while simultaneously expressing the musical spirit and perspective of each performer in free form solos. Jazz, like WCCA TV's mission, is communications transcendent exemplifying free speech and freedom of expression.
THANKS IN ADVANCE TO ALL our sponsors, funders, talented team of performers, volunteer crew members and behind the scenes committee and WCCA Board members.
