Camel City Jazz Youth Orchestra

Camel City Jazz Youth Orchestra

The Camel City Jazz Youth Orchestra (CCJYO) is a big band experience for students in high school, providing them the opportunity to explore their individual skills within a supportive ensemble environment, with a concentration on exploring jazz styles, standard repertoire and beginning improvisation.

The band brings together students from a variety of backgrounds and skill levels to create a fun and motivating introductory experience and performs a minimum of two times per year. Students receive hands-on jazz improvisation training through weekly theory classes Sundays at 2 p.m., followed by ensemble rehearsals from 3-5 p.m. All classes and rehearsals are held at the Stevens Center. The CCJYO is open to students who play saxophone, trumpet, trombone, piano, bass, guitar and drums.
