Biography: Central Virginia Jazz Orchestra
The band was organized in 2006 by recruiting talented players from Central Virginia who are dedicated to encouraging, promoting, perfecting, and performing music written since 1970 for big bands. We believe that big bands are still alive! Our 19 members were recruited from a long list of players of all ages, from high school and college students through the ranks of retired pro-level players.
From our charter: We “provide an opportunity for musicians to perform and listeners to experience and appreciate ‘big band jazz." The band also functions as an educational organization which brings this music to students and explains its roots. We perform repertoire of merit written by major jazz band composers and arrangers, as well as music written especially for the CVJO.
