Winnipeg Art Gallery, (300 Memorial Boulevard)
Within the confines of Congo Square, on the outskirts of the French Quarter,
jazz was born. A celebration of music and a melting pot of cultural influence,
jazz soon spread throughout Crescent City. Percussive counter-melodies,
raucous glissandi, and joyous growls from a tailgate trombone were often
the harbinger of an incoming parade. And in the bayou, parades are plentiful! Trombonist and Winnipeg expatriate Chris Butcher and trombonist
Al Kay from Humber College in Toronto join the WJO for our season opener.

COMMITMENT TO YOUTH PROGRAMS!
A mandate of the WJO is to make direct and meaningful connections with many eager young jazz students, driving their passion for music by giving them valuable tools, skills and inspiration through workshops and special classes to help them succeed in their year of jazz band at school and beyond. The WJO Youth Programs & Initiatives include: inviting school ensembles to play before and at intermission at every WJO concert, offering discounted student season ticket packages and complimentary tickets throughout the year.
Pre Concert School Jazz Bands
As a part of the WJO Youth Initiatives, we invite school jazz ensembles to play before WJO season concerts. We give our student performers comp tickets to enjoy the concert. We are also proud to offer these students’ parents discounted tickets to the show!
Discounted tickets for parents of pre-concert performers available up to 24 hours before performance.
