Jazz educators featured; Radio Arts Foundation suspends efforts

As the weekend winds down and the work week winds up, here are a couple of links related to stories we've been following:

A number of the musicians and teachers in St. Louis this weekend for the first Jazz Education Network conference also visited area schools to spread the word about jazz, and the Post-Dispatch's Sara Lenz wrote a feature story about it, which you can read online here.

Meanwhile, the Radio Arts Foundation, the local group of classical music enthusiasts who had hoped to purchase radio station KFUO, have put on hold their search for another local frequency to buy and convert to a classical format. The P-D's Sarah Bryan Miller has details in a Culture Club blog post here.
