Happiest Of Holidays

2015 has been a great year for PJP!

From September 2015 to December 2015, our season has been full and rich.

Great performances.

Great audience responses.

 

From last January to the Fall of 2015, we also did some great things.

▪ We presented Love Notes for Valentine's Day at the Arch Street Meeting House.
▪ 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.
▪ We and WRTI hosted the thrilling, US debut performance of Brazil's, Orkestra Rumpilezz.

Philly Jazz Quotes

The stuff McCoy Tyner did was earth-shattering for me. The modal thing, the way he voiced chords in fourths, the way he used the pentatonic scale -- all those things were very new.
Kenny Barron
