Brief Activity DescriptionThis jazz music themed concert/demonstration/lecture series will provide our Performing Arts students (and all other CI students) the opportunity to hear top professional jazz musicians from Los Angeles/Hollywood in performance. This series of three interactive concert/demonstrations will allow our students to experience Jazz music, America’s original musical art form, up close and personal. Students will have the opportunity to interact with our guests and ask questions about musical performance techniques. These concerts will vividly illustrate the musical concepts that we teach in our Jazz in America class. CI students have written many positive comments about our past jazz concerts. Students have said over and over that these live jazz music events really bring home for them exactly what has been discussed in our class. These concerts are open to all CI students, faculty, staff, and members of the community.

They will write their thoughts about the importance of the event, what they learned about music and performance, and how they have benefitted from the event. The students in my courses will be required to write a multiple page, in-depth review/summary of what they learned about the musical styles that were demonstrated at the events. The writing assignment for my class will serve to address our University’s goal of writing across the curriculum.

Target Audience/Student MarketingMy primary intended audience will be the CI students enrolled in the Performing Arts classes that were listed elsewhere on this proposal. All other students, faculty, staff, and community members are also welcome to attend this event. This event will be advertised by announcements and emails sent to all of the targeted courses (as listed above), and through the widespread use of social media. A small number of printed posters will be hung around Malibu Hall, which is where the most performing arts students will see these announcements, This event will also be posted on the Performing Arts Events calendar, and in the Events section of the myCI website.
Bring Benefit to CampusI don't understand this question. The sentence is not even grammatically correct!

The benefit of my concert events are to both our specific PAMU classroom students, and to all other people on campus and in the community.

Every thriving University provides cultural enrichment to the community. One of the main ways that this enrichment is done is through the presentation of high quality music concerts, such as the events that I have been bringing to campus for the last four or five semesters.
SustainabilityThese events will be mainly advertised via the CI Events electronic delivery system and social networking, to minimize the use of paper and other resources.
