Dr. Richard Gillis and Sasha Boychouk founded the Winnipeg Jazz Orchestra (WJO) in 1997, inspired by a vision of forming a professional big band with the best emerging and veteran musicians in Winnipeg.

The Winnipeg Jazz Orchestra, Canada’s first community-based non-profit professional jazz orchestra, has developed an interesting and dynamic model for the promotion and performance of big band music in Canada. The organization performs a jazz series in a concert venue, it has a not-for-profit charitable structure, and the objectives are related to performance, composition, and training.
