About the Jazz Orchestra of Philadelphia

Terell Stafford, Artistic Director and Deena Adler, Founding Director, announce the formation of the long-awaited Jazz Orchestra of Philadelphia (JOP). Terell Stafford, world renowned trumpet player and Director of Jazz Studies at Temple University, has organized an orchestra of 17 stellar, homegrown musical artists. “I am incredibly excited to have the opportunity to present Philadelphia Jazz in its rich tradition at its finest," says Stafford.

JOP is dedicated to presenting the highest quality jazz to the greatest number of people designed to preserve, represent and continue Philadelphia's unique, rich jazz sound and tradition. JOP aims to become the face of Philadelphia jazz, establishing the city as a nationally and internationally recognized destination for jazz performance.

In addition to embodying Philadelphia's vital jazz legacy with energetic jazz performances, both locally and outside of their home city, the Jazz Orchestra of Philadelphia will provide an essential educational component as part of its mission. As Director of Jazz Studies in the Boyer College of Music, Terell Stafford will offer a synergy with Temple University that intends to branch out to younger Philadelphia students.
