This program is presented in partnership with the Chicago Jazz Orchestra.
About the Chicago Jazz Orchestra
The Chicago Jazz Orchestra (CJO) was founded in 1978 as the Jazz Members Big Band by Jeff Lindberg and the late Steve Jensen. Composed of Chicago’s top musicians, the CJO is Chicago’s oldest professional jazz orchestra in continuous operation and one of the oldest jazz orchestras in the country. Like the mansion and the collection that is housed in the Driehaus Museum, the Chicago Jazz Orchestra has a long, impressive, and artistic history.
