Presenter Consortium for Jazz provides support to consortiums of three U.S. presenters that collectively engage up to three professional U.S. jazz ensembles (consisting of 2-10 musicians each) to perform at each presenter’s venue. Incentives are available to each consortium member that invites one of the 221 CMA New Jazz Works grantee ensembles to perform its entire CMA commission.

The Board of Directors of Chamber Music America has made diversity, inclusion, and equity a primary focus of the organization’s work. CMA’s goal in this program is, through the panel review process, to arrive at a final slate of grantees that is representative of the field in terms of the race, gender and the style of jazz of the ensembles that the consortium partners have chosen to present. Read CMA's Statement of Commitment to Diversity, Inclusion, and Equity.

A component of the Doris Duke Jazz Ensembles Project, Presenter Consortium for Jazz is funded by the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation.
