The Valley Brew and Take 5 Jazz Club bid a very fond farewell and wish good luck to Simon Rowe, the director of the Brubeck Institute and the spearhead of many jazz-related programs in Stockton:
“Rowe, who joined Pacific in 2011, has led the nationally respected Brubeck Institute through transformative change. He earned nationwide attention for the Brubeck Institute by forming partnerships for jazz presentation and education with the United Nations, the Smithsonian and Jazz at Lincoln Center. Locally, Rowe expanded the annual Brubeck Festival into a major regional event and established the Take 5 Jazz Club along Stockton’s Miracle Mile as a venue for performances by jazz artists at all levels and as a tool for local jazz education outreach. He increased learning opportunities for international students and faculty through the expansion of the Summer Jazz Colony and jazz education outreach to local schoolchildren through the Brubeck Outreach Program.”
