The 67-member Symphonic Jazz Orchestra, conducted by Mitch Glickman, is the country's only ensemble exclusively dedicated to blending the worlds of jazz and classical music. Now in its second decade, the SJO has performed at leading concert halls across Southern California including UCLA's Royce Hall, the Ford Amphitheatre, and Marsee Auditorium.
The concert will feature the world premiere of a newly commissioned work by composer Miguel Atwood-Ferguson, who will also perform as viola soloist along with beatbox flutist Katisse Buckingham. Other works on the program include music especially written for a family audience.
