There has been a growing interest in jazz among Valley of the Moon residents over the last 10 years. It’s common to see jazz bands playing for diverse private events such as weddings and business gatherings in our area. Chiriqui province is fortunate to have many exceptional local musicians worthy of recognition and a platform upon which to share their skills and talents. For this reason, the initiative to organize a jazz festival in the provincial capital of David has emerged. On behalf of Culturama International and Casa Cultural La Guaricha, I’d like to invite you to take part in the realization of David’s first annual jazz festival. We are designating the event the Peligro Jazz Festival in honor of the city’s oldest barrio and the renovation process this historic sector is undergoing.
The Peligro Jazz Festival is intended to stimulate greater interest in jazz by showcasing local and national talent. We are hoping to develop the event through encouraging personal social responsibility amongst residents of our area. The concept is nothing more than asking citizens to support the event. By asking citizens to support this cause, we can make it happen. The event will be financed through purchases of T-shirts, small donations, and attendance at the festival activities. You will have multiple options for participation and we hope to count you among the festival’s patrons.
If you are able to be an event sponsor, there are two options. Benefits of each are outlined below:
Oak Patron $100 donation
- Your name on the Patrons Page of the PJF website and on the printed program.
- Certificate of appreciation for your contribution to the festival
- 1 T-shirt with the festival logo
- Two VIP passes to the concert and two tickets for the wine tasting
- Meet & Greet and professional photo with festival artists (1 photo)
Friend of the Festival Patron $60.00 donation
- Your name on the Patrons Page of the PJF website
- 1 T-shirt with the festival logo
