Hometown Heroes

Hometown Heroes is a media partnership with WRTI where we honor the musicians and artists who have helped establish Philadelphia as a jazz city. We want jazz audiences regionally, nationally, and internationally to know who our hometeam is, and for the larger public to know why jazz and jazz artists are essential part of Philadelphia’s history and culture.


Jazz Philadelphia believes in supporting its home team. Tell us who your Hometown Hero is, and they’ll be considered for coverage.
