The Tony Williams Scholarship Jazz Festival was endorsed, supported and promoted by the Council Of Jazz Advocates and BDG Enterprises.
This 23rd annual Tony Williams Scholarship Jazz Festival wass established to provide college scholarships to selected students that have studied music and particpated in programs through the Mount Airy Cultural Center, Inc.
in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
The Mount Airy Cultural Center, Inc.
is a progam and agency that evolved from other programs

This program is grounded from a 50 year grass root
initiative to use the music genre of jazz to build esteem
and provide extended outlets to youth to enrich their
inner soul, intellect and creativity through music.
"The Tony Williams Scholarship Jazz Festival
is all about the young people."
