The SJCE is proud to announce that we have officially begun work on our first album. We are more that pleased to feature the work and talents of many fine musicians and composers who have contributed music for our past shows. We would not be in the position we are in today without the work and time of so many great individuals, and we are happy to have the opportunity to record and document the music that has been written for our organization thus far. If you would like to be a part of this process, please click the “Donate” button and make a simple donation of $5 to the SJCE. Your support makes our progress possible.


About seattlejazzcomposersensemble

SJCE was first conceived by co-directors Michael Owcharuk and Nate Omdal in 2007. Their love of large ensemble music instilled a desire to create an infrastructure that provides opportunities for other local composers and musicians to create and perform new large ensemble music. Since then, SJCE has commissioned 15 composers, featured over 30 musicians, produced several large concert events a year, and performed many grassroots concerts; all sustained through community support. SJCE has received support from 4Culture, The Seattle Mayor’s Office of Arts and Cultural Affairs, and has garnered media attention from the Seattle Times, The Stranger, and 94.9fm KUOW. SJCE is an partner artist program of the non-profit fiscal sponsorship and consultation company Shunpike, a 501(c)(3).
