An engaging and interactive way for students to learn about and develop a life-long love for jazz music. KCJO’s 18-piece big band performs a 45-minute suite of fun music to entertain and educate. Through performance and conversation, we present concepts like melody, harmony, rhythm, improvisation, and swing, and demonstrate essential skills like communication, listening, and imagination through great jazz tunes like “Sing Sing Sing,” and “It Don’t Mean a Thing (If It Ain’t Got That Swing).”
