EVENTS:  We produce a Spring & Fall Concert Series, six concerts annually; the Central PA Jazz Festival; our annual Picnic, CPFJ Jazz Stage at the Greater Harrisburg ArtsFest, Jam Sessions, and other events.  

EDUCATION:  CPFJ annually hosts the Central PA Jazz Camp for students aged 10 - 21; a college scholarship program; the CPFJ Youth Band - an improvising ensemble that performs frequently throughout Central PA; and a "Jazz in the Schools" program that sends professional artists to help area band directors with their jazz ensembles.
