The Jazz Orchestra of Philadelphia, with Terell Stafford as Artistic Director, will be launched at City Hall Courtyard at noon on April 30th for International Jazz Day with an announcement followed by a performance. Jazz Orchestra of Philadelphia, comprised of 16 excellent, Philadelphia based musicians, has an artistic vision that will honor, preserve and continue the rich jazz legacy of Philadelphia while adding vibrancy to the City's jazz scene. After a few local performances, there will be a Grand Gala Concert at the Kimmel Center in early 2014.

Our Story

With a long and distinct jazz history, Philadelphia is the home to a vibrant musician population who continue to build upon this musical legacy. Comprised of 16 outstanding Philadelphia-based musicians and led by renowned trumpet player and Artistic Director, Terell Stafford, the Jazz Orchestra of Philadelphia aims to preserve, represent, and continue Philadelphia’s unique, rich jazz sound and tradition by presenting the highest quality jazz to the greatest number of people.

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
