Terell Stafford has created the Jazz Orchestra of Philadelphia. In addition to embodying the city’s vital jazz legacy, the Jazz Orchestra will “provide an essential educational component as part of its mission.” As director of jazz studies in Temple’s Boyer College of Music, Stafford will offer a “synergy” with the University through which to reach out to younger Philadelphia students.
