About

The New England Jazz Collaborative (NEJC) is dedicated to presenting new music by a diverse group of living composers, and to expanding the audience for jazz. Founded in 2021, it has quickly established itself as a major cultural force, featuring many of the top composers and musicians in the region.

NEJC Priorities:

  • Promote jazz and new music to a wider audience through increased access and innovative programming.
  • Increase opportunities for composers and arrangers to have their music read, performed and recorded.
  • Create a community of like-minded artists to collaborate, exchange ideas and share resources.
  • Forge new connections between New England’s vibrant arts, education and business sectors by acting as a creative and cultural hub.
  • Embody the diversity of the region through a deep commitment to representation in all its forms.

We are proud to participate in Mass Cultural Council’s Card to Culture program in collaboration with the Department of Transitional Assistance, the Department of Public Health’s WIC Nutrition Program, the Massachusetts Health Connector, and hundreds of organizations by making cultural programming accessible to those for whom cost is a participation barrier.
