About the WCTJE:
The Washington Conservatory Traditional Jazz Ensemble was created to provide a multi-level outreach program of concerts, classes and special events in schools, the community and at the Washington Conservatory of Music and to bring the music to senior citizens, especially those of limited resources.
A grant from The Potomac River Jazz Club (PRJC) and a matching grant a WCM patron resulted in a wonderful new partnership with the PRJC and the launch of the Washington Conservatory Traditional Jazz Ensemble.
Members of the ensemble are the top traditional jazz players and jazz historians in the greater Washington DC area.
The ensemble has recently created a CD to make the music available to a wide audience. Stay tuned for news about the CD release-date and concert!
