Your planned gift helps support the CJO’s mission to increase awareness and appreciation of jazz by engaging the community with original music, exceptional performances, and inspirational educational programming.

We want to take a moment to recognize three deceased CJO donors, whose legacy gifts are helping us keep the music alive in Northeast Ohio:

Barbara Becker’s bequest has endowed our first saxophone chair

Graziella Wagner’s bequest is helping inspire the next generation of jazz musicians.

Stuart Reese’s bequest will help keep the music alive with concerts across NEO.
