Music is a language; and like other languages, one of its purposes is to communicate and express thoughts, ideas, and emotions.

SJMO is an ensemble that is part of the Smithsonian National Museum of American History in Washington, D.C. The orchestra is comprised of some of the nation’s best jazz musicians and educators.
