JodyJazz has announced it’s donated $10,000 to the Sound Support Foundation Scholarship fund in support of Caleb Chapman’s Soundhouse. Based in Salt Lake City, Soundhouse is nationally recognized as one of the leading music performance training studios for musicians ages eight to 18. The donation was announced at the recent Sound Support Foundation Scholarship Concert, which was presented by the artists and staff of Caleb Chapman’s Soundhouse. Jody Espina, founder and president of JodyJazz and world-class saxophonist, was one of the special guest performers at the concert and made the presentation to Caleb Chapman, Soundhouse’s founder, chairman and chief executive producer.

The Sound Support Foundation Scholarship Concert took place at the Eccles Theater in Salt Lake City on Feb. 10. In addition to Jody Espina, special guests included Thurl Bailey, NBA player and NCAA national champion; Michael Ward, guitarist of The Wallflowers; and Sal Cracciolo of Tower of Power.

“Caleb Chapman’s Soundhouse is one of the very best places in the world for aspiring musicians, and Caleb is one of the world’s preeminent music educators,” Espina said. “JodyJazz has been a longtime supporter of Soundhouse and Caleb’s activities and is proud to have provided mouthpieces for the Crescent Super Band for almost 20 years. Having seen the phenomenal growth of what we consider to be one of the very best extracurricular music programs on the planet, I could not have been prouder to participate in the concert and to contribute $10,000 to the scholarship program to provide opportunities for youth that might not be able to attend otherwise.”
