Episcopal Diocese of Rochester
Joy in Christ, as a way of life

Youth Jazz Initiative

We are pleased to write to you on behalf of the Episcopal Diocese of Rochester, the VERA AND IMRE HECHT FOUNDATION INC and the former generous members of St. Matthias’ Episcopal Church, to initiate a City of Rochester Jazz program for urban youth. This will take place just prior to and during the first weekend of the Rochester International Jazz Festival. This is co-sponsored by the Episcopal parishes in Rochester: Ascension Church, Christ Rochester, St. Stephen’s Church, The Church of St. Mark and St. John, and The Church of St. Luke and St. Simon Cyrene.
