The John Dawson Jazz Education Center at The Nash

Driven by enrollment growth of more than 300% in The Nash's education program, The Nash has established The John Dawson Jazz Education Center at The Nash.  The newly acquired 3,200 square foot space is located just across the parking lot from the existing performance venue.  A gift of $1,000,000 from the John Dawson Foundation funded the expansion and is the largest gift ever received by The Nash.  The Virginia G. Piper Charitable Trust also made a $100,000 gift toward establishing the Education Center.
