Classical Jam (CJ), a vibrant ensemble of flute, percussion, violin, viola and cello, brings five of the most highly demanded soloists and chamber musicians together. CJ is best known for its engaging and lively presentations for today's contemporary audiences, thought provoking concert themes, and wide-ranging repertoire from Renaissance dance music, traditional classical works, CJ's very own arrangements from Gershwin to Piazzolla, to original compositions by members of CJ and other living composers. CJ was recently selected by Concert Artists Guild to receive the Cary Trust Fund for Contemporary Music Projects, in commissioning composer Randall Woolf for a new work for the ensemble. A grant from the Puffin Foundation LTD. was awarded to Classical Jam in collaboration with filmmaker Kasia Witek in producing "Classical Jam- A Documentary." Classical Jam concerts range from subscription concert series, concerto appearances with orchestras, to in-school concerts, bringing the highest caliber of music to diverse audiences.
CJ Members have appeared with the Lincoln Center Chamber Music Society and Musicians From Marlboro, and have performed internationally in venues throughout Europe, Asia, the Americas, and the Middle East.
Recent Classical Jam performances include Lincoln Center Chamber Music Society, NY, Quad Cities Arts, IL, Art Center At Killingworth, CT, and Hudson Opera, NY. Future performances will take CJ to York College Performing Arts Series, NY, EMMA Concert Association, Fl, and Strathmore, MD.
