RYJO Combos 2 @ Kopleff Recital Hall
May 2 @ 7:30 pm

The Rialto Youth Jazz Orchestra (RYJO) was formed by Dr. Gordon Vernick in June 2010.  RYJO consists of one big band and five jazz combos. RYJO exposes students to the full spectrum of jazz music and education.   The students are selected through audition; participating high school students come from the following counties: Fulton, Cobb, Dekalb, Gwinnett, Clayton, and Fayette. Home schooled students are also encouraged to audition.

Our big bands and jazz combos perform music that is both historically significant and challenging. The students receive outstanding instruction in jazz performance, jazz history, and jazz improvisation from our staff.  Each jazz combo is supervised by one of the jazz faculty from Georgia State University.  The groups range from the intermediate level to the advanced level.  The combos are often asked to perform in the metro Atlanta area at music venues and senior centers.
