We are proud to welcome Dave Koz as a member of Dream A World Education’s Ambassadors of the Arts. Dave is an internationally renowned musician who has come on board to help raise awareness of and funding for our inner-city school arts residency programs. In the 25 years since the release of his self-titled solo debut album, saxophonist Dave Koz has received nine GRAMMY® nominations, had nine No. 1 albums on Billboard’s Current Contemporary Jazz Albums chart, toured the world and been honored with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
“In the almost 40 years I’ve played the saxophone now, I’ve been so humbled by the healing power of music and its ability to bring people together. Never before have the arts been as necessary as now, in this fractured world we find ourselves living in. The next generation, armed with instruments in hand, have the power to truly change the trajectory of this planet. We must do all we can to ensure that happens!”
Dave and our Executive Director, Bunny Hull, have written songs and played music together over the years. Dave’s advocacy on behalf of bringing music and the arts into the lives of children attending inner city schools will help heal our world. Thank you for coming on board Dave!
