The Colorado Jazz Repertory Orchestra (CJRO) returns to the Lone Tree Arts Center for an evening of live jazz that will delight its listeners. From Counts to Dukes, jazz has a long lineage of royalty and heirs, and a fresh take on many of these greats will be heard when the CJRO big band takes the stage. Songs featured include a new arrangement of “Take the A Train,” Billy Strayhorn’s beautiful ballad “Come Sunday,” and Count Basie’s “In a Mellow Tone.” Award-winning vocalist Marion Powers will be featured along with the full orchestra. 
 
The recommended age for this performance is 6 years or older. At the request of the group, please do not bring infants or toddlers.
