Coordinator of Jazz Studies Selected to National Board

The NIU School of Music is proud to announce that Professor Ron Carter, Coordinator of Jazz Studies, has been selected to serve as a board member for the Jaris Reed Group.

The Jaris Reed Group (JRG) is a non-profit organization whose mission is dedicated to the preservation of jazz. JRG produces documentary films in a program called "Jazz Backstage" which feature major jazz artists and then utilizes those films to educate children about jazz in schools throughout the United States. The project has gained excellent notice from actors, directors and producers in the motion picture industry as well as from members of the U.S. Congress.

Congratulations, Ron!
