Applications Available for JALC Touring Abroad Program

To increase cross-cultural understanding, the U.S. Department of State’s Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs and Jazz at Lincoln Center are sponsoring the 2007-08 “Rhythm Road: American Music Abroad Program,” offering jazz and hip-hop/urban music quartets the opportunity to travel to countries seldom visited by American musicians.

Selected ensembles will be provided overseas traveling expenses, an honorarium and the opportunity for live performance and cultural exchange; the musicians will also conduct master classes, lectures, recitals, workshops and jam sessions, and will appear on TV and radio. If all that wasn’t enough, these quartets will perform free concerts at Dizzy’s Club Coca-Cola in Frederick P. Rose Hall as well as in Washington, D.C.
