Presented by the nationally-recognized educational organization JazzReach, Stolen Moments is a thoroughly captivating and informative program that introduces teen audiences to jazz music's rich history and to the names, faces, and music of some of its many masters. It also highlights the interplay between the jazz movement and the evolution of American culture throughout the 20th Century, emphasizing the ways in which jazz has acted as a unifying force, bridging cultural, ethnic and economic differences; stimulated cultural fusions and new stylistic idioms; exemplified democratic ideals; and influenced other genres of music, both in the U.S. and abroad.
