The Sydney Jazz Orchestra personifies the quintessential Big Band.
In full seventeen piece flight, the band swings with ease and precision.
Switches musical gears without a hitch. Fuses jazz with pop, rock and blues.
Shrinks to a small group (New Orleans/Brass Band) – whatever is required for an event or private/corporate function.
Performs music made popular by some of the world's greatest artists...
think Ella Fitzgerald, Frank Sinatra, Diana Krall, Ray Charles, Nelson Riddle.
And arrangements from the pens of renowned writers - Bill Holman, Alan Baylock, Nelson Riddle and of course, SJO Director Tim Oram.
The Sydney Jazz Orchestra provides a unique opportunity for school music/band programs to interact and learn from some of the most in demand musicians in Australia. In a combination workshop/concert setting the Sydney Jazz Orchestra will provide your music students with music educational outcomes that satisfy the music syllabus requirements.
