RIVER EAST COLLEGIATE JAZZ ORCHESTRA
The River East Collegiate Jazz Orchestra is an ensemble comprised of eighteen high school students performing a repertoire spanning many styles and eras of jazz history. The ensemble has performed at local, national, and international events, receiving awards and accolades for their achievements. They have been named as five-time-finalists for Jazz at Lincoln Center’s Essentially Ellington High School Jazz Band Competition—the only Canadian ensemble to achieve this accolade. The ensemble has been commissioned to perform new works and arrangements for their local jazz community, and its members maintain busy lives outside of their jazz studies. Past and present alumni have established careers as professional musicians, composers, arrangers, and educators in a variety of genres. Most importantly, the group is bound together by a love of music and the joy it brings from sharing it with others.
