Seattle Repertory Jazz Orchestra plus the Bellevue Jazz Festival's Rising Stars
The Seattle Repertory Jazz Orchestra (SRJO) is the Northwest's premier
big band jazz ensemble. Founded in 1995, the 17-piece big band is made up
of the most prominent jazz soloists and band leaders in the greater Seattle
area. SRJO is co-directed by drummer Clarence Acox, nationally recognized
director of bands at Seattle's Garfield High School, and saxophonist/
arranger Michael Brockman, long-time faculty member at the University
of Washington School of Music. The ensemble's extensive and growing
repertoire draws from the 100-year history of jazz, from turn-of-the-20th
century ragtime to turn-of-the-21st century avant-garde. SRJO is dedicated
to keeping the art of jazz thriving in the Northwest. The organization
undertakes many educational outreach activities during its concert year,
including jazz workshops and clinics for local school musicians, in-school
workshops by SRJO artists, and the annual Jazz4Kids concert.
The orchestra performs on Sunday, June 5, following the Bellevue Jazz
Festival Rising Stars performance at 3:00 p.m. SRJO will take the stage
at 4:30 p.m.
