Johnny Summers, Director and Founder of the Calgary Jazz Orchestra, is a vocalist, trumpeter, arranger, composer, director, and educator.

“One of our greatest joys as performers is to dream and create these shows for you. To present a huge range of what music has to offer and our passion for it. All of us together, in a beautiful room, bathed in light and the soul of sound, enjoying laughter, art, and community in a shared experience.”
