The Alpha Schoolmarm Orchestra (ASO), the last concert of the 2017 City Park Jazz series is based on early ’60s Jamaican Ska music, is conducted by Denver music veteran Chad Aman.

Spanning from classical to gospel to jazz through to rock, blues, pop, funk and soul, JoFoKe (aka Joslyn Ford-Keel) is such a vocalist who does this with ease.
