About the CJRO

Colorado’s best musicians performing classic big band and modern large ensemble jazz, that’s the Colorado Jazz Repertory Orchestra. The CJRO plays to sell out houses at the Arvada Center, the PACE Center in Parker, the Rialto Theater in Loveland, as well as jazz festivals throughout the area, performing tunes from the libraries of Count Basie, Stan Kenton, Duke Ellington, Maynard Ferguson, CJRO composers and many more. As part of their season, the CJRO also partners with exciting world-renown guest artists.

Executive Director Art Bouton, Professor of Saxophone at the University of Denver’s Lamont School of Music, founded the band three years ago with the mission to perform the best music with the best players.
