JazzReach’s Fresh Air Fest

On July 20 and August 14, JazzReach Performing Arts and Education Association will present the Fresh Air Jazz Festival II, a series of live performances benefiting Fresh Air Fund Children, an organization that works with underprivileged children and gives them the opportunity to experience camp in a country setting.

The performances, made possible through a grant from the Music for Youth Foundation, will feature performances by the Metta Quintet, and will provide live jazz to more than 2,200 New York City youths attending Fresh Air Fund Camps in upstate New York. Last year’s Fresh Air Jazz Festival, which took place at camp Mariah in Fishkill, N.Y. included performances by Stefon Harris, Antonio Hart and Xavier Davis.
