Portland Jazz Orchestra

Since 2005, the 17 members of Portland Jazz Orchestra have come together year-round to present top-caliber orchestral jazz in the unique setting of the concert hall. Portland's first ensemble of this kind, PJO offers diverse, high-quality programs, from the most standard big band charts, to unique arrangements, to brand new works from today's premier jazz composers.

In 2007 Portland Jazz Orchestra was named the first-ever Resident Ensemble of the celebrated Portland Jazz Festival. The partnership between the two organizations creates community outreach opportunities throughout the festival, and enables PJO to perform on a national stage each February.
