Integral student programs like the Cuesta Jazz programs have been severely impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. The budget for each Performing Arts program relies entirely on ticket sales and donations made throughout the year.
The nationally-acclaimed Cuesta Jazz Program features a variety of small jazz groups and a big band that focuses on both classic big band sounds and modern arrangements. Over the last several years, Cuesta Jazz has served the community by offering first-class jazz education to its students, supporting the local high schools with an academic jazz festival and an annual honor jazz band, and by performing in a variety of venues throughout the county. Many of our students go on to study at top programs and/or become important musicians in our community.
If you are able to make a donation during this difficult time, any amount is warmly and sincerely appreciated. Thank you in advance for your generosity and commitment to supporting the arts at your local community college!
