The Colorado Jazz Repertory Orchestra returns to the Rialto Theater in Loveland, CO with a tribute to Maynard Ferguson on Friday, May 10 at 7:30 pm!

Ferguson came to prominence as an exciting high note soloist in Stan Kenton's orchestra before forming his own big band and recording almost 50 albums. The CJRO will perform hits from his long career such as; “The Theme From Rocky,” and “Hey Jude.” Performing in the Ferguson role will be trumpeter, Ferguson alumnus, and Colorado native, Pete Olstad. Olstad has toured and performed with Maynard Ferguson, Buddy Rich, Woody Herman, Blood, Sweat and Tears; Mel Torme, Brian Setzer, Tom Jones and Latin pop star Luis Miguel. Amateur trumpet players are encouraged to bring their instruments and join in on the final choruses of “Hey Jude” to close the show.

The CJRO performed to a sold out house at the Rialto last year, so get your tickets early for this exciting tribute show.

CJRO Director Art Bouton, Professor of Saxophone at the University of Denver’s Lamont School of Music, founded CJRO with the mission to perform classic big band and modern large ensemble jazz with Colorado's finest musicians.
