The Incite Foundation for the Arts has had a lasting and important impact on Hamilton All Star Jazz Bands. Through its generous support, it has provided for many outstanding professional Canadian jazz artists to work and perform with our student bands through our Artist-in-Residence program. Professional artists come to a series of rehearsals to listen to and advise our young musicians. These visits culminate with a concert for the public where the artist performs as a guest with one of our student bands. Incite has also helped us to maintain our social media and website platforms which promote ticket sales and raise the HASJB community profile. In addition, Incite has provided funding for students whose families have experienced financial difficulties."
