About the Oakland Jazz Choir

The Oakland Jazz Choir, (OJC) a non-profit, has been an Oakland institution since 1992. During this span the group has taken many shapes, sizes and forms but the common denominator has always been the same: Joy of expression, using the voice to communicate the triumphs, as well as the turbulence, of the human spirit. We are committed to bringing vocal jazz, blues, Brasilian and more, to underserved audiences in the Bay Area and beyond. Choir membership includes 16 singers, as diverse in age, religion, and race as our hometown. Artistic director Ben Flint, a native of Memphis TN, is steeped in gospel, jazz and R&B, and applies his diverse musical experience to finding a uniquely Oakland sound.
