HUP is excited to be a part of the recently launched COJENT (Chicago Original Jazz Ensembles, Now Together)! 

COJENT is a cooperative organization that promotes new music for large jazz ensembles.


COJENT is a cooperative organization formed by band leaders in Chicago to promote original large ensemble jazz music and to increase public awareness of this music. We are also seeking to foster the creation of new music and promote education of this music to people of all ages.
