CJO Season 12 Reimagined

The COVID-19 pandemic poses fundamental challenges to live music and we have to (temporarily) reinvent what the CJO is and does while the concert halls are closed.

In an effort to keep our musicians safe but also playing, and to continue to bring new music to you, we will be continuing Season 12 by filming the CJO live, outdoors on the grounds of Firefly Distillery in North Charleston for the Trumpet Legends performance, and premiering the recording virtually. For safety reasons, we are featuring half of the CJO musicians in this program.

Nothing replaces a live CJO performance, and we are all eager to get back to the Charleston Music Hall. But for now, take the best seat in your house to enjoy this specially created Trumpet Legends performance on Saturday, September 12 at 7:30pm. All season subscribers and ticket holders for the Groovin’ High performance, originally scheduled for September 12, will receive a private link and password to the performance. The performance will be available to enjoy for all ticket holders for the rest of the year.

As always, thank you for your continued support and patience as we continue to navigate this challenging time. We are learning, listening, experimenting, improvising, and adapting to ensure Charleston Jazz and the Charleston Jazz Orchestra will be back on stage swinging as soon as possible. To help us secure our future, please donate if you are able HERE.

In the event that by September 12, we determine it’s safe to welcome a live audience to our Trumpet Legends performance, we will let you know right away!

We will continue to update you on the rest of our performances for this year. We are monitoring the COVID-19 situation and are making decisions month to month in regards to our performances. Thank you for your continued support and patience as we navigate this season of uncertainty. Don’t hesitate to reach out to us at [email protected] or by calling 843-641-0011.

CJO Season 12 continues with Trumpet Legends

In early days of jazz, the majestic and astounding trumpet reigned and was the natural leader of the band – trumpet was king. Before the shift to the saxophone as the dominant instrument of jazz, musicians such as Dizzy Gillespie, Louis Armstrong and Miles Davis, to name a few, put the trumpet in the spotlight. For this performance, your Charleston Jazz Orchestra will feature members of its trumpet section as we pay homage to the Trumpet Legends who shaped its sound.

This performance is made possible in part by REV Federal Credit Union and Firefly Distillery.

Groovin’ High: A Tribute to Dizzy Gillespie featuring Jon Faddis (originally scheduled for September 12, 2020) has been rescheduled to 2021.
