The Reunion Jazz Orchestra members are all sons of Notre Dame, Notre Dame College Prep in Niles, Illinois, or Notre Dame in South Bend Indiana. Out of these creative environments have come many famous and award-winning musicians. RJO has in its ranks doctors, architects, technology professionals, music teachers and entrepreneurs. This band has as authentic a swing as you’ll find anywhere but also plays ballads, progressive and Latin music. It also knocks out some powerful big bank rock! RJO is a volunteer alumni organization, and money raised from performances and CD sales is donated to support the Notre Dame College Prep music program. RJO has recently set up a scholarship program for students in the Music Department.
