The Carrollton Jazz Orchestra is a 20-piece jazz band in residence at the Center for the Arts in Carrollton, Georgia . Constructed in the traditional instrumentation of the “big band” the orchestra is a collective of select musicians who value the creative opportunity to rehearse and perform  challenging and complex jazz in the context of a contemporary jazz orchestra format. Several members of the orchestra are some of Newnan’s own. Masterworks is excited to share the program with this creative group and we guarantee you will leave tapping your toes..
