As we begin the last month of the Fall, it pleases me to have selected a swingin’ jazz orchestra whose players are amongst the best musicians, and in some cases, educators the Front Range has to offer.

The composer, arranger and conductor of this aggregation is the award winning, and educator David Caffey who is now a resident of Greely.
