A Festival Benefiting Music Education
Proceeds aid the Ozone Music Foundation, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit dedicated to providing elementary and high school students in St. Tammany with further music education in the school system, and supporting interest and endeavors in songwriting, as well as potential careers in or related to the music industry. As the festival expands each year, it will provide musical and artistic opportunities to young artists by purchasing and donating musical instruments to schools throughout St. Tammany Parish, and matching students with mentors who will teach and foster inspiration.
