The Scott Mullett Fund for Jazz Education

The Scott Mullett Fund for Jazz Education made its first donation this past August to assist three young people in attending the Vermont Jazz Center’s Summer Jazz Workshops in Putney, VT.  The camp is one week of intense training in jazz performance and music theory.
