    In 2014, Elan founded the Annual Barbados Jazz Excursion & Golf Weekend, which directly supports his Never Lose Your Drive Foundation in Barbados, a non-profit, which directly funds the Headstart Music Program. The program provides free weekly instrument instruction to students ages 7 to 11 on saxophone, trumpet, flute, clarinet, and percussion.
    Blending Caribbean rhythms from his own roots with skillful horn textures, his playing is full of surprises. In 2021, Elan returned to his Alma Mater as an Associate Professor in the Ensemble Department. He also holds movie credits including the 2017 film, “Detroit” by Kathryn Bigelow and the 2022 Whitney Houston Biopic “I Wanna Dance With Somebody”.
