WJC is an artist-run non-profit project established to promote and encourage new original music influenced by the jazz genre.

Our vision is to provide a platform for creative musicians to present new, interactive, original improvised music without commercial restrictions from an audience or venue.

We believe we can achieve this by building a member-based audience and create an atmosphere and vibe that inspires and encourages the merging of cultural and musical styles to help musicians and listeners grow and flourish.

By joining WJC you are joining a proactive community of musicians and like-minded people who are committed to furthering the development of improvised music. 

Ways to contribute to WJC
You can contribute to WJC by coming to concerts or by paying a modest fee of $30 per calendar year towards running costs. By joining WJC you will receive reduced entry for WJC gigs, emails on upcoming gigs and will be supporting and encouraging live original music.
