Monthly Concerts in the Philadelphia Tri-State Area

Recent Concert Photos


Except for the musicians, we are all volunteers at Tri-State Jazz Society. It takes a large crew to produce monthly concerts.

We currently have openings for volunteers in three areas:

Promotion and Writing

We are seeking additional writers for the Strutter and for newspaper articles. You’ll need a PC, but advanced computer skills are not required. We need representatives to contact newspapers in either NJ or PA. We also need help distributing fliers in either PA or NJ.

Website Assistant

We would like an assistant webmaster or trainee to update our website each month. You should have a PC, good computer skills and a good eye for layout. We’ll provide the software and training.

Concert Assistants

We have openings for several people to help on the day of the concert. Can you arrive early to help with refreshments, set up the literature table, help on the parking lot (PA only) or greet people at the door?

To volunteer or for more information, please send and email to Sandy Catz, president@tristatejazz.org.
