The Kimmel Center for the Performing Arts is proud to announce its fifth annual residency program for Philadelphia Jazz Artists who are inspired to push jazz into the future with the creation of new work. Through this residency, audiences of all ages will learn about what Jazz can be and help our residents to shape their new compositions. As the Kimmel Center continues growing Jazz in Philadelphia, we are excited to hear our next group of resident artists. 

Over the past 4 years, the Kimmel Center’s Jazz Residency program has led to 10 world premiere projects featuring 95 new songs by 18 composers.
