Continued advocacy for the arts and fostering regional partnerships in the Eastern Sierra
Some of the extraordinary musicians that perform at JLJF each year are invited by MAC to come to June Lake a day or two before the start of Jam Fest weekend to perform at school assemblies located in the rural and remote communities of Mono County. This program was inspired by one of our favorite bands GrooveSession, when in 2015, they asked if they could perform at local schools while they were here. We thought that was a fabulous idea! These assemblies are very popular with the students and school staff who have little to no opportunities to experience live music. These inspiring performances are now an integral part of Jam Fest weekend and further the mission of Mono Arts Council to provide access to the arts.
