Virginia JAZZ: The Early Years Exhibition

VIRGINIA JAZZ: The Early Years is a cultural feast of musical artists from Virginia who, from the early 1900s to the mid-1960s, played critical roles in developing jazz as a great American music. Many of them also made contributions in other ways, such as advocating for Civil Rights, women's rights, and overall equality.


Come see Virginia JAZZ: The Early Years to learn more about Ella Fitzgerald, Pearly Bailey, and so many more Virginia jazz greats. The exhibition has been expanded since its original showing and includes 38 artists recognized on the national and international jazz scenes, as having made extraordinary contributions to the development of jazz. If you love jazz and history, you will love Virginia JAZZ!
