Anaheim, CA…. RYTMO will be hosting its 3rd annual fundraising event, “Jazz Generations” at Sunkist Community Church in Anaheim on Saturday, June 7th, 2014 from 3pm to 6pm.

The concert will feature some of the finest jazz artists and musicians in the industry, such as; Abraham Laboriel [pictured left] (Quincy Jones, Joe Sample etc.), Paul Jackson Jr. (The Tonight Show, Whitney Houston etc.), Justo Almario (Jennifer Lopez, Celia Cruz etc.), Hussain Jiffry (Sergio Mendes), Ricky Z (Lauren Hill, Josh Grobin), Del Atkins (Pointer Sisters, Gladys Knight), Jazz Generations Music Director Rique Pantoja, all sharing the stage with young “up and coming” talent from RYTMO.

RYTMO is a 501(c)3 organization whose mission is to EDUCATE, EQUIP and EMPOWER youth ages 14 to 24 years, through music, technology and the arts. Most youth who attend the program come from underserved communities and from at-risk backgrounds, throughout Orange County.

This year’s goal is to raise $20,000 to help send RYTMO students to the 5 Week Summer Performance Program in July at Berklee College of Music, in Boston, MA. Students who will be participating in the Berklee 5 week program have already auditioned and been accepted.

You can help make these students' dreams come true by purchasing tickets or by helping sponsor or donating to this event.  Your donation is tax deductible. Please visit RYTMO’s website at www.rytmo.org or RYTMO’s YouCaring site at www.youcaring.org for more information.
