The Philadelphia Jazz Orchestra will be hosting our 11th Annual PJO Jazz Week for interested student musicians entering grades 6 through 12. The program will be entirely education-based and will conclude with a concert featuring all the student ensembles and a performance from the Philadelphia Jazz Orchestra. This year the program offered in two sessions during two separate weeks. Each week is entirely independent of the other and is comprised of different music and different clinicians. Students may attend the June Jazz Week, the August Jazz Week or both with a discounted price for the second week.
Our summer program is geared towards the education of instrumental and vocal music students entering grades 6 through 12 regardless of their ability level. PJO Jazz Week will consist of large ensemble instruction, small group lessons, master classes, theory and history. All students will be placed by ability level on the first day of the program. PJO Jazz Week is about learning and fun. Students do not need to worry about their placement screenings. Placement screenings are designed to see what areas of the program will benefit them most. Tuition for PJO Jazz Week is only $500 for one week or $750 for both weeks.
