John F Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts Betty Carter Jazz Ahead
(Program Development Muse)

The John F. Kennedy Center’s Jazz Ahead program is named for the late Betty Carter, who possessed one of this era’s most extraordinary voices. Ms Carter was devoted to jazz education and often recruited young accompanists for performances and recordings, insisting that she “learned a lot from these young players, because they’re raw and they come up with things that I would never think about doing.” In 1993  Ms. Carter created a program called Jazz Ahead, which took 20 students who were given the opportunity to spend an entire week training and composing with Carter. Ms Carter brought her Jazz Ahead program, which is still ongoing, to the Kennedy Center in 1998.
