The Space Coast Symphony Jazz Orchestra (SCSJO) was a natural collaboration between the Space Coast Symphony Orchestra’s Artistic Director, Aaron Collins and Frank Wosar. Collins and Wosar both wanted to bring the same type of unique and challenging music to the jazz audiences as the symphony brings to the orchestral audiences. The Space Coast Symphony Jazz Orchestra was formed as a vehicle to create performance opportunities for jazz musicians in a big band setting. Featuring some of the best jazz musicians in the Southeast United States, the SCSJO is considered one of Florida’s finest jazz orchestras and a model for success, presenting big band jazz and innovative programming to thousands each year. By incorporating contemporary arrangements into its repertoire, the SCSJO promotes the future of big band jazz and promotes the lively, adventurous spirit that will keep audiences coming back again and again.
Personally chosen from some of the biggest names in entertainment, the musicians and dancers of the Space Coast Symphony Jazz Orchestra are among the most seasoned and talented working professionals around. Director Frank Wosar, has assembled the group from acts such as: The Tommy Dorsey Orchestra, The Glenn Miller Orchestra, and touring musicians who have performed all over the world with Grammy award winning bands. The mission of the SCSJO is to present music of the highest caliber while adding a visual aspect that compliments the music.
