Central Pennsylvania Friends of Jazz has been sharing the joy of live jazz and educating young musicians since our founding in 1980.

We believe that the spontaneity of jazz makes this music best experienced live - and that the energy of a great performance makes the music simply irresistible.

Check out our EVENTS page to see what we have coming up!

Our commitment to jazz education is fueled by the belief that learning jazz improvisation is beneficial for all students, whether or not they intend to pursue a career in music.

The key tenets of jazz improvisation - uninhibited self-expression, negotiation of ideas within a group, and spontaneous problem-solving - are applicable to life outside jazz. Our educational programs include the Central Pennsylvania Jazz Camp, the Friends of Jazz Youth Band, and the Ron Waters Scholarship.

 JAZZ - because life is improvised!
