The Jazz Museum in Harlem
The Jazz Museum in Harlem is looking to open next door to the Apollo Theater in New York City. The museum plans to showcase art and artifacts marking the history of jazz. The facility will also house a high-tech media center in which to present the recordings and films documenting the development of jazz. The museum will additionally couple the live presentation of jazz with lectures, community outreach, and public programs. Symposia, demonstrations, open jam sessions and classes in jazz history, appreciation and theory will supplement the actual performances.
