What a difference a day makes! Philadelphia Jazz Day 2012 at the John Coltrane House has made an enormous difference for our organization – giving us a huge boost in visibility and support. We thank the jazz musicians, jazz organizations, and the officials from the city of Philadelphia who made the Jazz Day event possible and successful.
Since April 13, activity on our website has zoomed. The John Coltrane House has had numerous inquiries, offers of support, some donations and a number of people pledging to donate when their finances permit.
All money donated will be used to make badly needed repairs, starting with the brick balustrade supporting the front porch. All donations will be acknowledged and progress reports made regularly.
We are heartened and encouraged by those who have reached out to us. Because John Coltrane’s music means so much to so many people, we are confident that we will realize our vision to restore and share with the world his beautiful National Landmark Philadelphia house.
