The Turner Center Jazz Orchestra
Make a tax-deductible contribution:
Turner Center Jazz Orchestra is dedicated to preserving American Big Band jazz and making high-caliber performances available to Central Iowans. When we first began and Paul and I voiced our belief that we could do both of those things AND farily compensate the musicians who dedicate so many hours to rehearsing and performing, many openly scoffed.
Thanks to you, we proved them wrong.
It’s always a high-wire act, though; we're always sweating it.
If you make tax-deductible donations this time of year, consider TCJO. Your contribution will help us:
Add new music to our library
Music is copyrighted, so we have to buy the charts the band plays. We hope to be able to purchase harder-to-acquire, more expensive scores that we haven't been able to afford.
Have the means to bring in nationally-acclaimed performers
This coming holiday concert is a perfect example. Paul Marinaro performs in venues world-wide, making it a very expensive concert to bring to you,
Provide greater access to performances
We are currently raisng money to put on a revival of Jazz in the Fight for Civil Rights to be performed Juneteenth at a reduced ticket price so as to make it as accessible as possible.
Thank you in advance for thinking of us!
