2021 PJO JAZZ WEEK

PJO JAZZ WEEK #1:

PJO JAZZ WEEK #2:  
Monday, August 9th - Friday, August 13th

We are pleased to announce that PJO JAZZ WEEK return this summer to in-person instruction.  To do so, we will be following the following COVID-19 protocols:

  • Temperature check prior to entering the Princeton Charter School facility each morning.
  • CDC Social Distance guidelines will be followed.
  • Face masks must be worn at all times with the exception of playing your instrument in your designated seat and eating lunch (socially-distanced) and preferably outdoors (weather permitting).


Please note that in an effort to return to a somewhat normal music rehearsal/performing experience, we will not be using bags for the instruments or special face masks during playing, however we will be following social distance guidelines and taking ventilation breaks.


For students/parents not comfortable with returning to these instrument playing norms, we are offering 1 week of PJO VIRTUAL-OSO in June this summer.  For more information on PJO VIRTUAL-OSO, please visit our PJO VIRTUAL-OSO page.


PJO is proud be be sponsoring the Philadelphia Jazz Orchestra Educational Program's 15th summer of jazz education for student musicians entering grades 6 through 12.  For students in grades 4 through 7, we are also once again offering PJO Jazz Jump Start!


PJO Jazz Week offers an outstanding jazz educational experience including small group lessons/sectionals, jazz theory, improvisation, large ensemble rehearsals, jazz history, and occasionally clinicians/master classes.


This program is offered in two sessions.  Each PJO Jazz Week session is independent of the other and is comprised of different music and different clinicians. Students may choose attend PJO Jazz Week Session #1, PJO Jazz Week Session #2,  or both Sessions with a discounted price for the second session.


Tuition for PJO Jazz Week is only $600 for a single session or  $900 for both sessions.
