The JPO has also prominently featured in TV advertisements for both Standard Bank and Old Mutual.

A grant of R 12,5M was approved by the National Lottery Development Trust Fund in July 2013, and enabled the JPO to continue with its operations.

In 2013, the JPO performed with a number of choral music societies, including the finals of the SAPS National Unity Festival.

Also in 2013, the JPO also appeared at the Teatro at Montecasino in the Cirque de la Symphonie shows; performed the world premiere of ‘Credo – A Musical testament to the Freedom Charter” at UNISA, and appeared at the “Long Walk To Freedom’ film premiere in Johannesburg, and at the opening of the Nedbank Golf Challenge at Sun City.
