Promotion and preservation of America’s indigenous music – Jazz.
The Sunshine Jazz Organization, Inc. has been promoting Jazz awareness, education, access, and performances in South Florida since being established in 1986 by Jazz radio icon Charles “China” Valles along with a passionate group of Jazz lovers. The SJO serves the South Florida community in a variety of ways by producing diverse, year-around programming including concerts, workshops, community outreach events, co-sponsoring Jazz-related projects, presenting arts and music in schools, retirement and community centers and more. As a Miami-based non-profit entity, we produce opportunities for all ages to experience the beauty and importance of America’s precious, indigenous music…Jazz! The Sunshine Jazz Organization’s programming is made possible through the partnership with Miami-Dade County Mayor and Commissioners and funded by the Department of Cultural Affairs with support from our Board, membership and community partnerships.
