CKYO Jazz Ensembles

Anchor 1

CKYO offers two big-band style jazz ensembles: Jazz Arts Orchestra (JAO) and Jazz Repertory Orchestra (JRO). Both ensembles rehearse and perform January through May of each school year.

The Jazz Arts Orchestra offers high school students advanced training and performance opportunities with our big band jazz ensemble. The Orchestra rehearses one night a week and is comprised of the standard big band instrumentation: alto, tenor, and baritone saxophones, trombones, trumpets, and a full rhythm section featuring drums, bass, guitar, and piano. Their performance venues include the Singletary Center for the Arts, Comedy Off Broadway, Ecton Park, and many others.
The Jazz Repertory Orchestra offers a beginning jazz experience for middle & high school students who are looking for an intensive, collaborative, and educational jazz experience.

Both the Jazz Arts Orchestra and Jazz Repertory Orchestra are conducted by Raleigh Dailey.
