Under the direction of Chip Zellner this group plays classic big band music, as well as newer pieces. The 17-piece ensemble maintains the tradition of a jazz orchestra, and features great soloists. The Berkshire Jazz Orchestra has performed in New York, Connecticut and Massachusetts, in events such the Newtown Arts Festival and the Wilton Jazz Festival. The group has been performing since 1987.
