Colorado Jazz Repertory Orchestra
The Arvada Center welcomes the Colorado Jazz Repertory Orchestra this upcoming season. The CJRO features everything from big band to exciting modern jazz compositions and has performed to sold-out houses and festivals throughout the Denver-metro area. Its mission is to perform the best music with the most accomplished musicians, and concerts often include world-renown guest artists.
Overjoyed, the Music of Stevie Wonder
Saturday, March 16, 2019 - 7:30 p.m. in the Main Stage Theatre
Come to hear new arrangements of Stevie Wonder classics from the CJRO’s new CD, Overjoyed , performing songs such as; “My Cherie Amour.” Robert Johnson, who sang backup with Stevie Wonder for many years and will perform “All in Love is Fair,” and “Too High.”
A Tribute to Maynard Ferguson
Saturday, May 11, 2019 - 7:30 p.m. in the Main Stage Theatre
The last time the CJRO played a Maynard Ferguson tribute, amateur trumpet players in the audience were encouraged to bring their instruments and join in on the final choruses of “Hey Jude” to close the show. It was a hoot! So, trumpeters, bring your horns. And of course, the CJRO will play “Rocky Theme Song” (“Gonna Fly Now”). This will be a fun concert, but definitely not for the faint-hearted!
