YJED Studio Recording 2019-20

Please consider supporting the 2019-20 Youth Jazz Ensemble of DuPage Studio Recording Project.

About the Youth Jazz Ensemble of DuPage (YJED):
YJED is an auditioned honors ensemble founded by current director Robert Blazek in 1998 to provide top high school jazz musicians in 20+ high schools in DuPage County and surrounding areas the opportunity to perform professional-level jazz music literature in concert and in an annual studio recording.  Since its founding, YJED members have had the privilege playing for highly prestigious events and with a number of jazz greats.  For more information about YJED, please click here  to see our website.

YJED is registered with the IRS as a not-for-profit 501(c)3 organization, and donations are tax deductible.

The studio recording:
At the end of each season, the band produces a recording with the best of their season's songs at Transient Sound Recording Studio in Chicago, IL.   Your donations will help fund studio time, sound mixing and mastering, and production.  With limited funds available as a not-for-profit organization, your funds can make a big difference. 

We are extremely thankful for the support of your donation towards our recording project.  Any amount is appreciated and with your generous support we can release the recording in Summer 2020.

Donations are appreciated by April 30 2020.

With gratitude from the 2019-20 YJED members
