DC Jazz Leaders in Service Awards Gala

The Capitol Hill Jazz Foundation proudly hosts the D.C. Jazz Leaders in Service Awards Gala in which we honor six leaders from the Washington, D.C. music industry who have dedicated their lives to presenting, promoting, educating and performing Jazz music. This year we are also very proud to honor Congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee (D-TX) as the head of the Congressional Jazz Caucus. This will be a ticketed event and proceeds will directly benefit the Capitol Hill Jazz Foundation.
