Our Mission

To preserve our cultural treasure known as the Great American Songbook by presenting this music to the public at home and abroad as Ambassadors of Song.

Our Vision

Our purpose is to build an Organization to stand the test of time and continue this body of work for the next 100 years and beyond for public benefit.

Will you help us to endow a Foundation dedicated to continuing this legacy for future generations?


“In a hundred to a hundred and fifty years from now, I believe that people will recognize the music of Gershwin and Ellington as the classical music of our time.”

Tony Bennett
