Key of She Virtual Week
This event occurred in August, 2020.
Due to the beginning of the COVID-19 Pandemic, we were forced to move our scheduled 2020 Live Event to an online format. Thanks to technology, we were able to connect virtually with jazz lovers all over the world. We hosted an amazing week of virtual sessions (Monday, August 3- Friday, August 7) form 4-5 PM specifically for students (middle school-college, specifically girls), but anyone of any age and gender was able to register. We welcomed educators, parents, and anyone who supports women in jazz. jazz.
