The Spokane Jazz Orchestra, founded in 1975, is the longest continuously performing community-supported jazz orchestra in the U.S.


Our four annual concerts in September, December, March and May are held at The Bing in downtown Spokane, a beautiful venue near restaurants, hotels, wine tasting, local breweries and shopping.


Make a night of it!

The Spokane Jazz Society postponed our March 14 Spokane Jazz Orchestra (SJO) Concert “Rhapsody in Blue: The Music of George Gershwin” due to concerns about the health of our patrons with a coronavirus outbreak. 


SJO has re-scheduled the Gershwin concert to May 23rd, which had originally been slated for “The Great American Songbook” with guest artist Keleren Millham, and that concert has been scheduled to July 25th. 


If you have a ticket for the March 14 concert,  hold onto it and use it on May 23rd. If you have a ticket to the May 23rd concert, hold onto it for the July 25 summer concert. Those who are not able to attend the rescheduled performances may get a refund for their tickets through Ticketswest.  We humbly request if you are financially able to forego your ticket refund to reduce the financial impact this event will take on our non-profit, volunteer-run community Jazz Orchestra.


The current pandemic is an unprecedented event and we appreciate your patience and understanding as we make arrangements to ensure our patrons can safely attend our upcoming SJO performances.


We will post any updates, as they become available, to our Facebook and Instagram accounts and will send them to our email list. 

There’s nothing else like it – music that sings to your soul from some of the best jazz musicians in the Northwest.

We keep our standard of music high and the cost of tickets low to make our concerts accessible to members of our community. SJO concerts are an amazing value.

Each concert features a guest artist, a vocalist or musician who helps shape the music for that evening.

We are a non-profit organization with a mission beyond our concerts – we support jazz music education for middle and high school students in our community.
