Adopt a Cat

Do you have a favorite musician in the band or a favorite instrument?

Through the ADOPT-A-CAT CJO Musician Sponsorship Program you can honor that musician or instrument and help the Cleveland Jazz Orchestra continue its dynamic programming.


Get To Know Your Cat

As a sponsor you will be invited to various rehearsals and events around town where you can meet and chat with the musician who occupies your sponsored seat.


Recognition As The Musician Sponsor

Your name will be displayed in the program, on our website, and on the Hanna Theatre Lobby boards for that seat for the full concert season.


Memorialize Your Love Of Jazz

You can underwrite the musician or instrument of your choice for yourself, a relative, friend or associate. Honor a loved one, celebrate a special occasion, give as a holiday gift, award an employee, or provide visual recognition of your patronage to the CJO.
