I wanted to be in touch to pass along the brochure for auditions in to CKYO’s two big band style jazz ensembles, led by Raleigh Dailey from UK. Auditions will take place the first week of December, but registration is due November 20, before Thanksgiving.
The Jazz Arts Orchestra is primarily designed for advanced high school students who are looking for an intensive and high-level jazz experience. The group performs 3-4 concerts each spring semester including concerts at The Lyric Theatre, Comedy Off Broadway, and on tour throughout central Kentucky.
The Jazz Repertory Orchestra is primarily designed for middle school students who are looking to develop their skills of reading, improvisation, and jazz literature, and performs twice each semester.
Both ensembles rehearse on Tuesday evenings at Maxwell Street Presbyterian Church in Downtown Lexington, beginning in January, and are led by UK professor Raleigh Dailey.
Please feel free to pass the brochure (see link below) on to your students, or direct them to our website www.CKYO.org/AUDITIONS where they can also find this information.
Thank you so much, Daniel
