The JVC Jazz Festival made its debut in 1984 when JVC teamed up with jazz impresario George Wein’s Festival Productions, Inc., to create an event that for more than 20 years has been a driving force behind the growing popularity of jazz around the world.
“The JVC Jazz Festival allows people worldwide to enjoy great live music by some of the world’s most talented artists,” said Craig Geiger, executive vice president/chief operating officer for JVC Company of America. “Our enduring sponsorship reflects our appreciation for great music and our commitment to provide people with the means to enjoy it – whether live through the JVC Jazz Festival or through the use of our products.” –Bob Grossweiner and Jane Cohen
