Dear TJO Alumni Member,
On April 4, 2020 the Toledo Jazz Orchestra will be celebrating with the group’s 40th anniversary performance. The T.J.O. is inviting all former members of the band, previous Board members and past directors to attend and participate. There will be rehearsals for anyone wanting to play on Thursday April 2nd and Friday April 3rd. We would like to invite soloists, ensemble players, and directors who own their own batons to perform on the concert. Everyone is welcome! We would love to hear from every one of you. There will be lots of opportunities to catch up with old friends, tell great lies and stories, and to remember those who are no longer with us. The concert on April 4th will be at 6:00 P.M. with a reception immediately following in the Valentine Theatre grand lobby.
Please let us know if you will be joining us and whether you would like to participate in the celebration. Whether you can be there or not, know that it is your cumulative efforts that have made the Toledo Jazz Orchestra one of the longest running and artistically successful jazz ensembles in the country!
We look forward to your reply and hope to see every one of you on and around April 4th. And again, please let us know if you would like to perform/direct on the concert and in what capacity. Thanks so much everything you have done to make it possible for the jazz orchestra to celebrate 40 years of great jazz in Toledo!
Board of Directors
