OSU Jazz Orchestra Performance at 2023 Jazz Education Network Conference

The OSU Jazz Orchestra has been invited to perform at the 2023 Jazz Education Network (JEN) Conference in Orlando FL on January 5, 2023.  An invitation to perform at the annual JEN Conference is one of the highest honors a university-level jazz ensemble can achieve. Audio submissions are peer-reviewed (blindly) by university jazz directors around the country. Only four to five university big bands, worldwide, are selected to perform at this event. In addition to their performance at the event, the nineteen OSU Jazz Orchestra students will get the opportunity to view numerous concerts and clinics/workshops from some of the world's greatest jazz artists and educators.

A generous supporter of our Jazz Studies program at the Greenwood School of Music, The K John Lee Family, has agreed to match every gift to this project, dollar for dollar up to $12,000.

The Greenwood School of Music is extremely proud to have the OSU Jazz Orchestra selected to perform at this event. Double your impact and support our students as they travel to this prestigious event!
