CJO Symphonic Swing: Jazz Meets the Classics May 22

The Charleston Jazz Orchestra (CJO) presents “Symphonic Swing – Jazz Meets the Classics” on May 22, 2021 at Charleston Music Hall. There are two performances: one at 5:00 pm and the other at 8:00 pm. Click here to purchase tickets.

Although Jazz and Classical music are different in many ways, the border between the two genres is a fluid one. With Symphonic Swing, your CJO will bring the world of improvisation and swing to notable Classical compositions. Local arrangers will bridge the gaps, bend the genres, and introduce the styles of Miles Davis, Thelonious Monk and Billie Holiday to Mozart, Tchaikovsky and Beethoven to name a few! For two performances at the Charleston Music Hall (CMH), Jazz meets the Classics!
