Jazz Performance and Education Centre
Officially incorporated in 2008 as a non-profit charitable organization, JPEC was born when jazz aficionados Raymond and Rochelle Koskie assembled a committee of fellow enthusiasts, who, over the course of 10 years has committed itself to jazz by:
- - Petitioning for a full-time, non-profit performing Music/Arts Hub in Toronto, including a detailed plan as to how this could benefit Toronto.
- - Coordinating the support of a group of non-profit arts organizations towards this goal.
- - Solidifying an education outreach program that sends musicians to conduct workshops in schools with little or no music program.
- - Presenting over 50 concerts in the past decade to a strong jazz fan base.
