Welcome to the 35th season of the Cleveland Jazz Orchestra!

This is a great time of change and growth for our organization.  Last season we celebrated our 34th anniversary in a big way, by traveling from past to present on a musical journey highlighting our history, present and future.

Artistic Director, Paul Ferguson begins his 4th season.  It is an honor to work with someone with his vision, passion and talent.  He has planned an incredible season with exciting guest artists, collaborations with other arts organizations, and a greater presence in the community and suburbs of Cleveland.  We’ve expanded our programming by adding Friday performances to our holiday concerts and we have doubled our efforts to perform run-out concerts and offer education and outreach programming.

From an Administration standpoint we have dedicated staff, an enthusiastic and hard working board, and a strategic plan in place to grow the organization from within and out.  We envision growing our staff, continuously improving our operations and focusing our energy on audience development, donor cultivation and increasing employment opportunities for our musicians.  We are proud of what we do, who we serve and the experience we provide for our audiences.

Last, let us not forget the musicians that make up this world-class band.  This season I encourage you to enjoy the programming from the band as a whole and to focus on the individual musicians that are talented beyond belief.  Individually they are stars!  Put them together and it's absolute magic.
