Soulsville Charter School Jazz Band

entertainment, events, music

In addition to the Stax Museum of American Soul Music and the Stax Music Academy, the Soulsville Foundation also runs a high school called the Soulsville Charter School, whose purpose is to provide academic instruction in a “musically-rich” environment. The jazz band from Soulsville Charter School performed Sunday at the Stax to the Max festival, and I was amazed at the level of musical accomplishment of these youngsters.
