Let's Make a Difference!
JOI builds programming to increase opportunities for kids to play in public. While education is foundational to building musical talent, performances build confidence, depth, and strength for young musicians.
JOI Jazz Orchestra
The JOI Jazz Orchestra is a professional big band comprised of first-call musicians. The JOI Jazz Orchestra will be working to plan and present high quality public performances for the public as a way to both add to a vibrant jazz culture and community in Southern Nevada, as well as to support its many educational and outreach programs, masterclasses and clinics, and more.

Las Vegas Youth Jazz Orchestra
Bringing together student musicians of all demographics and from as many schools as possible creating a community of musicians for the next generation. Directed by our Vice President and Director of Programming, Gary Cordell, the big band consists of students from high school seniors to as young as 11 years old. Collaboration is often the key to rapid yet pragmatic growth and we found that partnership in the Las Vegas Youth Orchestras organization.
