The Zawinul Foundation

In 2003, Austrian composer and jazz-fusion keyboardist, Joe Zawinul, was honored to lend his name to the Zawinul Musikschule in Gumpoldskirchen, Austria. At the time, Joe said, “Music is one of the few forms of communication that enables interpersonal communication and understanding between people without language barriers and intellectual boundaries.”
Before his death, Joe began fashioning an exchange program between music students at the Zawinul Musikschule in Austria, his home country, and music students in America, Joe’s adopted country. And that’s the impetus for the Zawinul Foundation for Achievement.
Established in 2013 by Tony Zawinul, the Zawinul Foundation for Achievement fulfills Joe’s dream to encourage and cultivate the pursuit of performing arts careers in young, promising musicians. We’ll also be welcoming a JVG Live viewer from the UK, Mike Farmer.
Please help support the Jazz Video Guy on his mission to keep Jazz visible.
