Portland Jazz Composers Ensemble

We’ve set a goal: 50 new or returning members by the end of 2016.

The PJCE is growing, and we’re looking for new supporters to help us! With your $50 donation, you get access to discounts for PJCE concerts, PJCE Records releases, early previews, and other perks from our community partners, like Portland Center Stage and PDX Jazz. Musicians and Students can become members for just $25.

And if we reach our goal, our Board of Directors has pledged to give at least $1,000!

Portland Jazz Composers EnsembleWhy support the PJCE?

As the only Portland non-profit organization dedicated to resident jazz artists and audiences, it’s our job to do what no individual artist could do on his or her own. We need to dream big so that this whole community can dream big.

To guide our decisions as we do that, we’ve set these three priorities—every concert must be unique, collaborative, and community-oriented. At every PJCE concert you should hear something you couldn’t hear anywhere else, performed by artists working together who may not have done so otherwise, and all of it will expand the boundaries of what’s possible in our field.

Without support from our members, we simply could not do what we do. If one of our concerts, recordings, podcast episodes or any of our other programs have made a positive impact on your life, we encourage you to take the next step and become a member by clicking here.

Thanks so much for your support.

Douglas Detrick, Executive Director
