Seattle Office of Film + Music


Edmonds Beacon
Get em’ while they’re (extra) hot: Tickets are now available for Starbucks 16th Annual Hot Java Cool Jazz concert, which will bring some of the region’s top young musicians together for a spectacular show at the Paramount Theatre Friday, April 15 at 7:00 pm. Box office proceeds from the show will benefit the music programs of the high schools participating in the event, which this year include Edmonds-Woodway, Garfield, Mountlake Terrace, Newport and Roosevelt. Since 1995, the Starbucks Hot Java Cool Jazz program has helped raise more than $200,000 for Seattle high schools’ music and jazz programs, helping to cover the costs of band competitions, equipment and travel in the face of widespread budget cuts for arts education. “We want to help ensure that Seattle continues to be as known for our music scene as we are for our coffee,” says Starbucks regional VP Kris Engskov. Last year’s event sold out, so jazz fans are encouraged to buy tickets in advance at the Paramount Theatre box office, online or surcharge-free at select Starbucks stores.
