AJO performs on the first and third Monday of each month. Going into their 16th season at ABC, the Amherst Jazz Orchestra has quite a following! Therefore, we encourage everyone to come early to get a good seat, as we do not accept reservations for this event. Starts at 7:30 PM and goes until 10:00 PM.
