Welcome to the Education Page of the APL Manieri Jazz and Swing Endowment. We believe that a significant part of our mission is to welcome both young and old in our community to the joy and appreciation of jazz and swing music. The very future of a thriving music culture in Anacortes lies in the hands of an eager audience, and the more people know, the more they accept it as an integral part of our culture. This will ensure the future of jazz and swing music.

Our signature program has been, Jazz at the Library on the 2nd Sunday of each month from 2 – 3:30 pm. Jazz educator and musician, Vince Fejeran hosts; and ensures that each artist and musical group represents a different style, in an engaging and informal setting. Musicians encourage questions and discussion and it is a great place to meet others of all ages, who also enjoy jazz, swing and blues music.

We have other plans, hopes and dreams. If you have any suggestions, please go to the Contacts link and send us a message.
