Letter from the Founder and President

Founder and President of JAZZONIAN, Bobby Ramirez(7-27-2011)
Dear friends of Jazzonian:

Beyond Jazz, at the time when I conceptualized the idea of creating a museum to celebrate Jazz in South Florida, I saw this as: It starts with people, and it ends with people. As a result, I've been greatly blessed to see so many wonderful people inspired by our mission and asking one simple question: What can I do for Jazz?

What would a Jazz museum do in South Florida?

Jazzonian would celebrate Jazz as America's most unique artform; preserve Jazz heritage; advance the legacy of Jazz; empower Jazz education through cultural outreach programs for kids and adults; empower the next generation of Jazz musicians as well as help to build future audiences; foster a deep appreciation for the artform; empower great local Jazz institutions and organizations; help establish Jazz as an important attraction to the area; empower South Florida as a world class destination for live Jazz; serve as an incubator for preserving the history of Jazz in the area, and more!

The story of Jazz (as is music and art) is a window to the human experience. In that spirit, Jazz has the potential to inspire in the form of creativity, positive self-esteem, overcoming adversity, freedom of expression, and exceptionalism.

The goal of having a Jazz museum in South Florida is audacious. With your involvement and/or partnership, we will achieve this goal. And in the process, you will become part of the Jazzonian movement that will inspire, educate, and bring people together!

In the Service of Jazz,

Bobby Ramirez
Founder and President
Jazz Museum of Florida, Inc dba JAZZONIAN

Please feel free to submit any suggestions, comments, or express any constructive criticism on how we can make it better. Your input is very much appreciated.
