SJO Celebrates its 15th Anniversary! 
Thank you for making our 15th Anniversary Concert at the Carpenter Performing Arts Center such a magical evening. With two world premieres by Alan Chan and Gordon Goodwin, a salute to George Duke, plus off-the-chart performances by Jane Monheit and Eric Marienthal, it was a night we will not soon forget.
