RJO Director Search Series 2023-24

Director Search Concert Series
Four Concerts - Four Guest Directors

Join us in searching for our next music director!

The Music Director Search Series is a four-concert showcase of the prospective choices for the orchestra's next music director. Each concert will feature a different conductor.

On Sunday, March 10, 2024, at The Theatre, saxophonist Greg Johnson will take center stage to lead the Reno Jazz Orchestra in a program titled "Jazz Around the World," featuring music from Kansas City, Iceland, Canada, and Tokyo. The concert will include some of Johnson's own compositions and also feature him as a saxophone soloist with the band.

Dr. Greg Johnson is quickly becoming recognized as an important voice in the jazz community. His distinctive saxophone sound and compositional style have found their way into multiple genres of Jazz, Classical, and Popular music. He has toured and performed with notable Pop and Rock acts and has appeared in concert and on over 40 mainstream recordings with jazz legends Curtis Fuller, Billy Taylor, Bob Mintzer, and many more.

AND, this particular concert is the last of our Music Director Search Series! Come help us choose our final candidate as you experience our fourth and last candidate, Greg Johnson, take the stage. At the end of the concert, we would appreciate your input through a quick survey that you will receive that night.
