RCJBF is an Open Tone Music (OTM) initiative. OTM provides free access to world class performances and music education. Proceeds raised through the festival will be used to provide students in grades K-12 with year-round educational programming to help them develop work ethic, self-esteem and respect, while also teaching them about Akron’s rich history of jazz and blues to ensure music continues to be celebrated for many years to come.
We hope you will join us to feel The Rhythms of Akron and help us reach our fundraising goal of $350,000. Please review our sponsorship packages and opportunities for your company to receive recognition before and during the event.
Thank you to our 2018 sponsors:
