SRJO is the Northwest's premier big band jazz ensemble. Founded in 1995, the 17-piece big band is made up of some of the most prominent jazz soloists and band leaders in the Pacific Northwest.
For almost three decades, the SRJO was co-directed by drummer Clarence Acox, nationally recognized director of bands at Seattle's Garfield High School, and saxophonist/arranger Michael Brockman, a long-time faculty member at the University of Washington School of Music. Michael has recently taken over as Artistic Director as Clarence turns his attention to his many other projects. He still serves as Artistic Director Emeritus.
