Jazz At Drew is an all-day outdoor fundraising and community concert produced and hosted by Charles R. Drew University of Medicine and Science (CDU) featuring some of the most prolific names in Jazz and R&B. Jazz At Drew’s emphasis on premier talent in South LA with international appeal has been the distinguishing factor that separates the event from larger Jazz festivals in Southern California. More importantly, it displays Jazz and R&B in a range of styles all while being surrounded by a burgeoning and ethnically diverse community.
Box Office is open Tuesdays and Thursdays, 10AM to 5PM until September 26th at CDU, 1730 E. 118th St., LA 90059
Now in its fourth year, the re-emergence of Jazz At Drew remains one of LA’s best kept secrets as an established entity within the local community, and the Los Angeles Jazz and R&B scene. Jazz At Drew’s mission is two-fold: to support CDU students in health professions and biomedical science through scholarships and professional development opportunities and to provide the South Los Angeles area with excellent entertainment as a commitment to engage the community.Proceeds from the Jazz At Drew fundraiser will also support CDU pipeline programs that seek to engage youth in math and science grades pre-K through 12 from underserved communities. CDU therefore values concert guests not only as customers, but as donors and supporters of CDU’s mission of cultivating diverse health professional leaders who are dedicated to social justice and health equity for underserved populations through outstanding education, research, clinical service and community engagement.
