It is hard to believe it has been one year since the Boscov’s Berks Jazz Fest presented a concert to celebrate Chuck Loeb’s life and music.

Memories from that amazing tribute concert will be with all of us forever.

The beloved guitarist passed away in 2017 after a two-year battle with cancer.

The hard reality is that time keeps moving forward.

Following the tribute concert, the Berks Arts Council and the Berks Jazz Fest established the Chuck Loeb Memorial Scholarship.

Chuck was a creative force with the fest in many ways for nearly 20 years. He loved the Berks Jazz Fest; and everyone involved with the fest loved him.

To continue Chuck’s legacy, the scholarship fund annually supports Berks County students who plan to continue their music education after high school.

The scholarship is being administered by the Reading Musical Foundation. As of this posting, the fund has exceeded the $25,000 mark.

We hope you will help the fest keep Chuck’s memory alive with a contribution to the Chuck Loeb Memorial Scholarship Fund.
