Bringing CJO to Your School

The CJO’s commitment to music education comes at a time when many schools are struggling to balance tightened budgets with the known benefits—such as increased intelligence, and increased success in school, society and life in general—that music education provides.

 CJO Outreach: Brecksville Broadview Heights High School

On January 22nd the CJO joined the very talented jazz ensemble at Brecksville-Broadview Heights High School for a day of side-by-side instruction. That evening the students performed alongside the CJO and on their own to a packed house in the BBHS auditorium. The show wrapped up with a one-hour big band performance with the Cleveland Jazz Orchestra. Net proceeds from the event benefited Brecksville Broadview Heights Band program.

What a wonderful night of music, education, and community! Thank you to everyone at BBHS for making this collaboration possible–we can’t wait until next year!
