"The J-I-C has a very strong brand, that deserves to be seen by more people. So that's some of my vision over the next few years, how can we get this music into the hearts, minds and hands of even more people.  How can we grow the organization, yet maintain, because it's working" - Heather Ireland Robinson talking about her goals for the Jazz Institute.
