About

Help create a world-class live music ensemble in Sacramento.

We have the potential to pave the way for a new musical arts ensemble of the highest order here in Sacramento. This is an opportunity for you to help enrich the regional music community and creative cultural arts scene by becoming a co-sponsor of a jazz ensemble composed of the area’s finest musicians.

In Sacramento on October 13th The Capital Jazz Project presents the premier of the Jacam Manricks Orchestra (JMO), performing dramatic, emotional new works and arrangements by a nationally acclaimed jazz composer Jacam Manricks.

The JMO has two primary goals: The first is to establish an orchestra of elite local artists, creating an environment for inspired collaboration and collective artistic development. The second is to enrich local arts by presenting world-class concert performances that engage audiences ultimately promoting the depth of Sacramento’s rich creative culture.

This concert will be professionally recorded and videoed, creating essential promotional materials for generating future performances and consequently establishing a new branch of the CJP. This is where you come in. While we expect this concert to be well attended, the costs of initiating an ongoing project of this size will exceed ticket sales for this one concert. With a CJP and JMO co-sponsorship, your contribution can help establish the orchestra as an ongoing, vibrant cultural and musical arts platform for the region.

In exchange for co-sponsorship, we are offering a number of items, services and opportunities, starting with reserved seating to CDs, recordings, musical manuscripts, invitations to private concerts, private music lessons and more! Please see the list below for co-sponsorship levels. Jacam Manricks the composer/arranger/conductor will donate all arrangements and compositions in-kind for the performance. Consequently 100% of any co-sponsorship received goes directly to the musicians’ fees, concert space and equipment rental, live recording costs, and promotion for performances. Please see co-sponsorship levels on page 2 of this document and a list of the musicians you will be sponsoring is below that.

Thank you for considering contributing to this project!

Risks and challenges

The reality of funding a 19 member jazz orchestra anywhere this day and age needs to be approached realistically. That’s because generating fair payment for 19 professional musicians, hiring a venue and equipment, making promotional materials, advertising, and orchestrating the music is time consuming and can be expensive. The way we face this challenge will combine in-kind donations, promotion, concert ticket sales, and fundraising.

Let’s first talk about in-kind donations and promotion. There are 19 respected jazz artists and two established nonprofits organizations involved in this project (The Capital Jazz Project and The Midtown Vanguard Jazz Series). One of the advantages of having so many involved is it enables us to disseminate the news of this exciting endeavor effectively. There will be in-kind promotional pursuits via radio and social media by all involved and Jacam has already generated three articles about the project in credible Sacramento media sources (Sacramento Bee, Sacramento Magazine and Inside Magazine) without cost.
Jacam is also donating his services as composer and arranger for the project. He has booked the musicians and scheduled the venue and rehearsal space also without generating expense.
Next we will talk about ticket sales. In order to cover musician fees, venue and equipment hire we need to sell roughly 209 tickets at the average admission price ($20). This is a fairly large audience for a local jazz concert. Therefore, to help make ticket prices accessible to a wider demographic we will vary them from higher priced reserved seating to affordable student rates allowing those who can contribute more to do so and those who can’t to still attend and enjoy the concert. We believe this collaborative, collective and accessible approach will heighten our marketability and boost ticket sales overall.
Finally, lets discuss the purpose of this fundraising campaign. With it we aim to generate funds for expenses ticket sales don’t cover, including any remaining musician fees, live recording and video costs, marketing, and ongoing promotional expenses for the JMO. If things go well we can continue to provide artistically rewarding work for musicians and enrich the local arts and music community in the region for years to come.

Thanks for reading!
