The CAAPA Jazz Ensemble was founded in 2019 as a part of the Coalition for African Americans in the Performing Arts (CAAPA) performance ensembles, which also includes the CAAPA Chorale, CAAPA Dance Ensemble, and CAAPA Chamber Ensemble. The current Music Director for the Jazz ensemble is a former CAAPA Scholarship applicant,pianist and composer Ronald Walton.
The ensemble debuted in September 2019 at the annual Melody of Art Season Kick-off Reception, and born under the directorship of pianist and CAAPA’s 2016 1st Place Music Scholarship Awardee, Joshua Jenkins. For its debut Jenkins also conducted members of the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra, who were special guests at the event. The ensemble has since performed at the Kennedy Center, Harmony Hall Arts Center and Publick Playhouse, as well as at the Association of the Study of African American Life and History (ASALH)’s 2020 national conference. Performance repertoire includes, but is not limited to: jazz by Black composers, historically significant jazz selections, traditional jazz, smooth jazz, and contemporary jazz with the music itself changing to suit the event and occasion with personal interpretation and improvisation of its performers. The CAAPA Jazz Ensemble’s goal is consistent with CAAPA’s overall mission of “Bringing Color to the Classics®” .
