Composers Cookoff 2024

June 8th at 6:30 pm
The Historic Alberta House

Three composers will head off in a friendly competition—who can create the most delicious, the most delightful, the most delectable new composition using the secret ingredient, Lil Hardin Armstrong's tune "Struttin with Some BBQ." Dinner is included in the ticket price for all who attend, and you can be sure that the dinner will match the entertainment! 

Offering their critique will be jazz community celebrity judges including last year's Cookoff winner, Christopher Brown. Performing these new creations will be a chamber quintet with Raul Gomez on violin, Mieke Bruggeman on bass clarinet, Tim Gilson on cello, Tim Willcox on tenor sax and clarinet, and PJCE founder, Andrew Oliver, on piano.

We've set a goal to raise certain amount at this event from our sponsors, the silent auction, the raffle, and from additional contributions made by our donors. Thanks so much for your help in helping us meet and hopefully exceed our goal!
