Help us Transform Portland’s Jazz Scene: sponsor the Portland jazz composers Ensemble

We build community and opportunity for jazz composers, performers, listeners and students in Portland and across the state. As a sponsor, your business can help us share the best in Portland jazz with the community, and spread the word about your brand at the same time!

What is the Portland Jazz Composers Ensemble?

The PJCE is a 501c3 organization that operates the 12-member Portland Jazz Composers Ensemble, a group devoted to commissioning and performing original music by Oregon-based composers; and PJCE Records, an innovative record label that releases recordings by Oregon composers featuring their own groups.

We’re changing Portland’s jazz community by keeping these principles in mind:

Unique  We curate one-of-a-kind events that resonate with our diverse audience.

Collaborative — We connect artists and communities that would otherwise be separate.

Community-Oriented — We create new opportunities for musicians, listeners, and students to connect with jazz and with each other.

Who is the PJCE Community?

The PJCE serves a diverse audience of Portlanders with concerts, community-building events, and educational programs throughout the year. Our collaborations with singer-songwriters, jazz students, the Oregon Historical Society, and Portland Center Stage connect us to a wide cross-section of Portlanders, beyond just people who are already interested in jazz.

How can sponsors reach the PJCE community?

Your message will reach our culture-loving audiences at events, on our website, on our podcast, and in our printed program.
