school letter and registration form

Dear Parents, Teachers, and Friends:


This year marks our 16th Annual Visual Arts and Jazzfest NYC™ and on Friday, June 14th 2019, 10 am – 4 pm, we are celebrating our 4th Annual Visual Arts and Jazz Day™ (and this year marks our 16th Anniversary for our festival)

The event will be held at the Denny Farrell Riverbank Park@ 145th St inside the Robert F. Smith Cultural & Performing Center. 

Our goal is to further connect young audiences and the entire community to our annual festival and to enjoy the visual arts and jazz experience. 

This is a perfect event for a school/day trip and we welcome you to join us for a free community day with puppet making, storytelling, music, guest visual artists and jazz musicians, along with other activities.


You are welcome to bring a brown bag lunch (seating is available outdoors) or you can purchase food at the Food Court located inside of the park.

As you know, jazz music has played a very important role in the shaping of our society and is an American treasure. Its history and its legacy are important to continue in our community and to ensure our young people can study and appreciate the music and our seniors can enjoy the music they love.

Below is a copy of the registration form. This form can be emailed to me at This will assist us with ensuring we have enough supplies for everyone.

Once we receive your registration form, I will email you back confirming that we have received it. Please indicate the number of people attending and time(s).

For additional info, I can be reached on my cell phone at 212/665-5313 or via email.
