About

Since 1990, the Orchestra has played for thousands of jazz enthusiasts around North Carolina at schools, artscenters, festivals, dances, and more. More than 35 guest artists have performed at the Jazz Society’s Temple Theatre series in Sanford. In 2002, the orchestra’s book has over 240 tunes (and growing). The book includes a carefully considered repertoire of pieces that reflect a wide range of Big Band Jazz styles and arrangements. Included are classics such as Two O’clock Jump, Stompin’ at the Savoy, and Frenesi, as well as many ballads such as The Nearness of You, Imagination, and September Song. That’s a far cry from the 10 or so tunes in the book at our first Fearrington Fall Fling where we had to play pieces twice and some thrice to fill the time!
