Join me on Jazz Tones on Atlanta's Jazz Station 91.9 WCLK Sunday at 3pm as I continue my look at the behind the scenes experts who are helping keep Jazz alive(and funded). I will be joined by Sara Donnelly. Donnelly is the Director, Jazz at South Arts. She is an experienced arts administrator and Jazz specialist. Donnelly has held grantmaking postions in the national Jazz and arts funding arenas, including with the National Endowment for the Arts ( Jazz Fellowships, Multi-Music Presenters); National Jazz Service Organization ( Lila Wallace-Reader's Digest National Jazz Network); Association of Performing Arts Professionals (Continuing Education/Arts Partners); and Mid Atlantic Arts Foundation ( Jazz Next, French-American Jazz Exchange, Jazz Touring Network). Sara will oversee Jazz Road, an initiative funded by the Doris Duke Charitable Trust with additional support from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation. It is led by South Arts in partnership with the five other U.S. Regional Arts Organizations (Arts MidWest,Mid America Arts Alliance New England Foundation for the Arts, and Western Arts Alliance/WESTAF, New England Foundation for the Arts) and will offer support for Jazz artists to tour to new communities around the country.
