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:
Friday, December 8th at BLU Jazz+: https://blujazzakron.ticketleap.com/cleveland-jazz-orchestra-peanuts-meet-the-grinch-12-08-2017/

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!

One of the best parts of our annual Christmas show is the instrumental petting zoo that happens before our last show. Courtesy of Royalton Music Center, we'll have a number of horns and drums for students to try an hour before our Sat. 12/9 show at Playhouse Square. Here's Musical Director Paul Ferguson and the fabulous Jim Rupp from last year's petting zoo. Student tickets for only $10 are available for this and all subscription shows using the code 1STU: http://www.playhousesquare.org/events/detail/peanuts-meet-the-grinch-featuring-russ-mitchell-and-evelyn-wright

Help the CJO wish Musical Director Paul Ferguson a Happy Birthday today! CJO concerts are always different sonic experiences bc the bulk of what we perform is music that Paul writes specifically for the CJO. Not only is Paul a fabulous trombone player, but his compositions and arrangements have won international awards and acclaim. Thanks for the music, Paul! #happybirthday #thankyou #cleveland #clevelandrocks #clevelandohio #jazz #jazzy #jazzdance #music #orchestra #bands #trombone #composition #arrangements
