Students and CJO

Student response to our education outreach program has been extremely positive. When asked what they liked best about sitting next to a professional musician, students at one high school wrote: “Being sat amongst professionals and realizing that they are relatively “normal.” (sorry about the cliché).” And, “The fact that a person took the time out to come and teach me.”

 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!
