Chicago Jazz Philharmonic

Jazz and classical music thriving in perfect harmony...


"Bristling innovation and mainstream melody-making classical modernism and free jazz improvisation — all these elements, and others, converge when CJP takes the stage."

— Howard Reich, Chicago Tribune

Blues Kids

Each Summer we present Fernando Jones' Blues Camp in different parts of the United States and Europe. Though Blues Camp is free, each Blues Kid attendee receives a tuition waiver scholarship valued between $1,500.00 and $2,500.00. This “priceless,” fun-filled, experience is designed to impact the life of the "Blues Kid" who simply wants to experience this cultural enrichment opportunity in an organic and nurturing environment with like-minded others.

The Jazz Education Network

The Jazz Education Network is dedicated to building the jazz arts community by advancing education, promoting performance, and developing new audiences.
