Whitehall Ohio
Race  Population  Percentage 



White  8,759 46.41%
Black & Other 10,115 53.59%

The majority of Whitehall residents are made
up of Black or other ethnic groups, yet the
City of Whitehall Mayor and The Parks and Recreation Director will not allow programming and other events which reflect the culture of
these groups, including allowing SEMM Foundation and Jazz 98.5 radio to present live jazz concerts in City controlled public parks.



Allowing Jazz In The Park And In The Whitehall Area Does This:

  • Creates more performance opportunities for musicians

  • Provides live jazz music entertainment, education and enjoyment

  • Helps the local economy & merchants

  • Provides family entertainment value

  • Promotes cultural diversity
  • Promotes a positive, inviting, progressive and welcoming
    perception of the Whitehall
    community and residents
  • Keeps Jazz Alive

Beautiful Setting Made For Jazz



From The Whitehall Watchblog

...  Codes are so stringent in a town of regular people that it leaves little to no room for exciting innovation, diverseness of character and expression from your very own talent pool. I have heard ‘no’ so many times within Whitehall it truly speaks to what is wrong here, and not with the people themselves. City Hall is so afraid to allow people their true liberty, scared to death that every human being in town will go utterly mad without their control and start robbing, murdering and putting their cars on cinder-blocks in the front yards. They have a complete lack of trust in anyone’s sense, except their own, and that’s the truth of Whitehall’s leadership. They rule with an anti-liberty, anti-diversity, anti-poor, anti-freedom, anti-human ‘vision’, steering the ship of state with an iron grip, eyes fearfully peeled for anyone or anything unlike their dull, standardized selves which challenge their contemptuous ‘vision’ ...


We too are victims of the Coronavirus.  Our 2020 concert season has been cancelled until 2021.
