Welcome!

The Central Pennsylvania Friends of Jazz is dedicated to the education, preservation, and presentation of Jazz, America's original art form.

Embracing tradition...moving it forward to create new legacies...

Formed in 1980, CPFJ is a non-profit organization serving a diverse community of jazz lovers and students in Central Pennsylvania.      

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.
