BAND ROOM NATION

Jazz is alive and well and
burning within the youth of our Atlanta area young jazz musicians. Band Room
Nation’s newest initiative,
World Class Jazz Youth Ensemble, is an honor jazz ensemble composed of
the best high school musicians in the Metropolitan Atlanta area. World ClassJazz is a celebration of the jazz music culture as well as talent and passion
within the youth of Atlanta in our public schools. Over the course of
one weekend, some of the best high school jazz musicians that Atlanta has
to offer will take part in an extremely rigorous rehearsal schedule, in
preparation for an electrifying performance on the Atlanta Jazz Festival stage.

(501c3), music advocacy organization that was established in 2011 by Lynel
Goodwin, Rod Whittaker and Leroy Lovelace. The purpose of Band Room Nation is
to promote and support fine arts programs across America. With the current
status of fine arts in the public school sector, there was a need for an organization
that would give students an outlet to showcase their talents. Through Band RoomNation events and initiatives, students are able to showcase talents for an
audience in an environment that fosters an appreciation for the arts. We firmly
believe that if the community has an appreciation for the arts, it will become
more of a priority for our students. To date Band Room Nation annually hosts 6
events and 4 programs with more currently being facilitated. Band Room Nation
has given over $10,000 in scholarships, prize money and support to public
school students and arts program and has invested more than $100,000 in
showcases and initiatives.
