Toledo Jazz Orchestraa
The Toledo Jazz Orchestra sponsors the Junior Jazz Orchestra, a youth jazz ensemble. The Junior Jazz Orchestra plays before concerts and has its own performance in the spring.
The Toledo Jazz Orchestra also performs for school assemblies for students of all ages. A series called “The Evolution of Jazz” features explosive jazz numbers with an educational component, including an understanding of improvisation that any student can appreciate, regardless of their music knowledge. The series is comprised of four levels that can be scheduled in successive semesters or years creating a fulfilling musical element for school assemblies.
The Orchestra brings an ensemble or individual performer to perform and educate in a format tailored specifically for music students. The format is crafted for each specific band and its needs as determined by the school’s ensemble director. This offers the students the maximum benefit to receiving valuable information at a level they can access and appreciate.
Private instruction is available through a number of the highly trained educators in the Toledo Jazz Orchestra. Please contact us for additional information.
