KCJO puts forth engaging themed shows ranging from Duke Ellington’s early works to brand-new reimaginations of pop music that celebrate the past and embrace the future.

In 2013, Clint Ashlock was named Artistic Director and conductor. He holds master’s degrees in jazz and music composition. KCJO supports music education, frequently hosting masterclasses conducted by their outstanding visiting artists, in addition to in school programming.

The Hanover Big Band incorporates all styles of big band jazz. Their joy in playing always reaches the hearts and legs of their audience.
