Dear Friends and Families, 

Unavoidably, until further notice the Greenville Jazz Collective (GJC) must suspend all future performances of the GJC Big Band as well as the monthly jam sessions at Chicora Alley and rehearsals of the Youth Jazz Ensemble. 

GJC ensembles performing for business establishments or other clients are to be considered on a case by case basis.  

Please watch this space for updates on our performance schedules and service efforts in support of working jazz musicians, K-college educators, small businesses, and others in the community going forward.  

There no doubt will be some improvising ahead, but “changes” are kind of our thing so confidence prevails here at the Greenville Jazz Collective! Please bear with us as we do our best to keep the music and information flowing to you. 

As always, thank you for supporting jazz music and the arts in Greenville.  
Be safe, be kind, and keep swinging! 

Board of Directors 
Greenville Jazz Collective

We need your help!

Help support great jazz events and
opportunities in Greenville.

Entering our 8th year, we ask for your support as we look to continue to grow our efforts. Through your tax deductible contribution, you make possible: 

-JazzEd Ensemble - The first of our educational programs, JazzEd has performed concerts, masterclasses, side-by-side play alongs, and presentations for over 25,000 students. Your support helps us make these school visits possible. 

-Jazz Summer Camp Scholarships - Along with Furman University, middle and high school students have the opportunity to immerse themselves in jazz. Your contribution makes it possible for students to attend who would otherwise not be able to afford to do so. 




-Youth Jazz Ensemble Scholarships - Running from October to May every Monday with several concerts, middle and high school students get to play in small groups and big bands. Your gift makes it possible for students to participate who would otherwise not be able afford the cost.  

-Award Winning Jazz Music - Live and recorded, GJC has been named Best Jazz Band of the Upstate and was named "Best New Local Release" for our 2018 Big Band album "Welcome to Earth." Your contribution helps make these groups possible and keeps loads of great jazz events in Greenville.

The Greenville Jazz Collective is a non-profit organization started in 2012 by highly-respected members of the jazz community in Greenville, SC.  Through education outreach in the community and regular performance in an environment that is best suited for listening, the mission of the GJC is to create a greater awareness and appreciation for jazz music and history in the Upstate for generations to come.
