Presenters Consortium for Jazz Invites Applications for Digital Only Presentations



Dear Jazz friends,

In response to the needs of our artist and presenter community during the COVID-19 pandemic, the 2021 Presenter Consortium for Jazz program invites applications for digital-only presentations. The program supports consortiums of three presenters that collectively engage up to three professional jazz ensembles to stream or Livestream performances to each presenter’s audience. Up to $10,000 per venue/presenter available for eligible expenses.

Since 2014, the program has supported over 70 jazz venues, series, and festivals in 24 states and Puerto Rico (including AL, AR, AZ, CA, CT, DC, FL, IL, LA, MA, MD, MI, MN, MT, NC, NJ, NM, NY, PA, OR, TX, VT, and WA). This cycle embraces opportunities for artists and presenters to broaden audience reach and digital capabilities by funding eligible expenses to include: ensemble(s)’ concert fees per venue; Livestream production, marketing and distribution costs; concert production (lighting, sound, etc.); travel, housing, per diem, and cartage if the ensemble will use a presenter’s venue as the live streaming site.

Furthermore, we have removed the matching funds’ requirement for this cycle and will offer 100% of the funding amount requested for online events.

Attending an application workshop is strongly recommended. RSVP required: https://www.chamber-music.org/pdf/2021-PCJ/Application_Workshops.pdf

NB: We are working remotely through the pandemic, please contact us by email if you have any questions regarding the 2021 PCJ program cycle.
