Join the Smithsonian Jazz Masterworks Orchestra (SJMO) Ensemble for a musical tour of jazz cities in America at the National Museum of American History!

It is commonly accepted that New Orleans was the birthplace of jazz, but many cities and regions around the country played a significant role in the incubation of jazz music and developed unique regional styles that would slowly influence and inform the larger language of jazz.

Places like Chicago, New York, Los Angeles, Kansas City, St. Louis, and others inspired musicians and composers to develop their own personal voice and fostered a recognizable regional sound and style, just like any other language or regional accent. Paired with the continual evolution of technology, changing regional characteristics, migration, education, and cultural shifts, jazz continues to evolve around the country and in new generations.

Join the SJMO this February to take a musical journey across the nation to explore how jazz has evolved based on these regional, social, personal, and generational differences.
