2015 has been a great year for PJP!
From September 2015 to December 2015, our season has been full and rich.
Great audience responses.
From last January to the Fall of 2015, we also did some great things.

▪ We showcased some awesome artists through the Mysterious Traveler Concert Series in collaboration with the Free Library of Philadelphia and Producers Guild.
▪ We presented the Art Blakey Tribute, Another Holiday For Skins event at the International House.
▪ We collaborated with WXPN, WRTI and NPR to present Home Cooking: Celebrating the Philadelphia Jazz Organ Tradition at World Cafe Live.
▪ We co-produced the 7x7 Concert Series at Venice Island Performing Arts & Recreation Center with seven artists.
