SUPPORT SIMA’S TRIGGER INITIATIVE AND
YOUNG WOMEN IN JAZZ
“The Young Women’s Jazz Workshops provided me with an important opportunity to take my first steps into the jazz world. The encouraging atmosphere of the workshop and the support from the mentors gave me confidence and inspiration to continue and pursue my goal. Above all, the most inspiring aspect of it was having incredibly talented women as mentors, teachers and friends.”
Zela Margossian – pianist, vocalist, composer
