World Heart Beat Music Academy and ZEDRA, have announced a new partnership, which celebrates the mutual values of the two organisations. ZEDRA’s sponsorship will allow the charity to create a new jazz talent development programme for young musicians aged 14 – 25 years, many of whom live in challenging circumstances.
The new ‘ZEDRA Talent Development – Jazz Programme’ reflects the aim of both organisations to provide opportunities and transform young lives. ZEDRA’s partnership will fund the participation of 8 talented young musicians with significant promise, for whom support is needed to enable them to reach their full potential. The students receive tuition from exceptional musicians, attend masterclasses from visiting artists, play in regular combo and ensemble sessions, perform in a wide variety of venues and benefit from further opportunities coming from the Zedra partnership. The new partnership came about following a brokered introduction from GlobalGiving, which connects non-profits, donors, and companies in nearly every country around the world.
