Jazz Orchestra is a powerhouse 18-woman professional jazz ensemble
showcasing Vancouver’s most accomplished female jazz artists. Just as
important, we also have a mission: Empowering today’s top jazzwomen to
provide visible role models for the next generation.
Professional jazz stages still showcase primarily male musicians – and
this means that girls with an interest in music literally can’t see
themselves as jazz musicians.
SJO’s premiere show on November 17 featuring, as guest artist, the
incredible New York drummer and bandleader Sherrie Maricle, is a
uniquely-inspiring musical event that will enrich all jazz lovers while
also helping young women see what they could be. Directed by Christian
Morrison, it’s a straight-ahead jazz celebration that will entertain, move and educate big band jazz audiences, with a primary focus on the rich repertoire of women writers.
