Jazz Arts Initiative growing

CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV) - The Jazz Arts Initiative is a non-profit with a mission of promoting, educating, and preserving jazz and related art forms in our community.

It's Jazz Room series at the Stage Door Theater is now in it's third season and there are some changes planned.

The John S and James L Knight Foundation awarded the Jazz Arts Initiative a $30,000 grant to support the monthly series.

Now with this added funding the series will move to Friday nights in July and a second show will be added each night.

Lonnie Davis, President of the JAI, visited WBTV News Sunday Morning to talk about the exciting new changes and to preview a concert with Grammy nominated artist Christian Scott.
