The Atlanta Contemporary Jazz & Neo-Soul Festival on August 17, and 18, 2012, at The Beach at International Park, home of the 1996 Olympic Volleyball Games  is the first of its kind in south metropolitan Atlanta and will feature a unique blend of contemporary jazz and neo-soul under one umbrella. This beautiful Clayton County landmark will be filled with soothing music performed by locally and nationally acclaimed artists.

A portion of the proceeds will benefit the students of our local schools through the arts education. These funds will be disbursed through the Clayton County Council of Parent Teacher Association’s (CCPTA’s). In addition, the Atlanta Contemporary Jazz & Neo-Soul Festival will serve as a platform to collect gently used instruments ensuring that all of our students have access to the proper tools to learn and play music.
