A Celebration of Jazz in Detroit

Video by Cass Corridor Films. In recognition of Fred Erb’s legacy of jazz patronage, the Erb Family Foundation is dedicated to the continuation of Detroit’s strong jazz tradition. The Foundation supports four programs — The Carr Center Arts Academy, Detroit International Jazz Festival’s Jazz Infusion Program, Michigan State University’s Community Music School program in Detroit and the Detroit Symphony Orchestra’s Civic Jazz Programs — which work to nurture and develop the next generation of Detroit jazz musicians, providing high-quality instruction to over 250 middle and high school students each year.
