The Columbus Community Jazz Band is the chance for anyone who has played an instrument to get back in the swing of things! Led by some of Columbus’ finest musicians, the CCJB performs jazz classics in a fun and engaging environment.

This fall we return to making music together in a traditional big band setting, led by trombonist Jessica Sneeringer, one of Columbus’ most well-regarded musicians and educators and a frequent performer with the Columbus Jazz Orchestra and Famous Jazz Orchestra. We will meet every Wednesday night from 6-8pm for 5-weeks and end our season with a final public performance on Tuesday, October 31st at 8pm at Capital University.

Please note: the final performance falls on Trick or Treat for some communities. Please consider this before registering!

Registration: Due to increased interest, we ask that all interested participants, new or returning complete the CCJB Interest Form below. We will then fill the ensemble based off of these submissions. Please complete this form by Sunday, September 24th to be considered for CCJB Fall 2023.
