The Seattle Jazz Composers Ensemble is making our first record and we need your help! Please become part of our growing network of patrons, artists, and music and art lovers.

SJCE is asking you to help us raise $1500. Your money goes directly to produce the recording of 7 compositions by 7 local composers scored for a 12-piece ensemble of local musicians.

In return for your support we have some gifts for you:

  • $10+ donation – high-quality digital download of the album and listing as producer in the album liner notes.
  • $25+ donation – 1lb of exclusive SJCE blend coffee from Middlefork Roasters, plus the download, and listing as associate producer.
  • $50+ donation – Band autographed poster of the album cover art by Nate Omdal, the coffee, the download, and a listing as executive producer.

Please feel free to donate absolutely any amount you can. No matter how big or small, every dollar counts!

SJCE goes into the studio on Oct. 9 and 10 and we can’t finish this project without your help.

Want to take advantage of your employer’s donation matching?  Please contact Michael Owcharuk (michael dot owcharuk at gmail dot com) for more info and added perks for you and your company.

Here is some footage from last weeks rehearsal for the recording:


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).
