We're anticipating sellouts for both of our "Peanuts meets the Grinch" holiday shows with WKYC Channel 3 - Cleveland's Russ Mitchell and Evelyn Wright (less than 25% remain for each night)--if you've not gotten your seats, we'd recommend doing so as soon as possible. There will be an instrumental petting zoo for kids to try out horns at 7p on Saturday, and we'll be premiering Artisitic Director Paul Ferguson's new setting of 'Twas the Night Before Christmas.
As always, there are student tickets available for only $10 (for Friday they are available at the door; for Saturday, use the code 1STU). For tickets, go to:

Former CJO trumpeter Douglas A. Huey endured the horror of having his house catch on fire yesterday. Not only did he lose his home, but also his Mother, dog, horns and a lifetime of memories and material possessions. Longtime listeners will remember Doug's great energy and soloing in the late 80's-90's before he returned to his native Iowa. And those that had a chance to play and be w/ Doug all know him to be a GREAT guy that would do anything for anyone. There's been a GoFundMe set up to help Doug and his daughter get back up on their feet. If you can help Doug, please do, and thank you!
It's GivingTuesday, and the CJO would like to thank its many listeners and supporters for helping us bring our communities in NEO all the entertaining and educational events we provide each year. Via our "Side by Side" concerts with the region's high schools, "Jazz Discovery" series concerts for children, discounted student tickets, instrument petting zoos, the CJO brings a great deal of music and talent to our region's students. And our "CJO in the City" initiative helps make presenting the CJO in parks, clubs, churches and the like possible. All of these and more happen bc of the support of you and others like you. We ask for and thank you for your continued help in the CJO's efforts to make our region better.
