Bohemian Caverns Jazz Orchestra
A Bohemian Christmas

There’s something about a big band that encapsulates the spirit of the season. Even though the legendary nightclub it’s named for is now closed, The Bohemian Caverns Jazz Orchestra (BCJO), a 17-piece big band, is still going strong and continuing its quest to simultaneously embrace and challenge the treasured traditions of big band repertoire. Featuring some of DC’s best musicians, the BCJO performs a holiday concert that includes classics from Ellington, Basie, and Strayhorn.

  • The Bohemian Caverns Jazz Orchestra is named after the legendary (now closed) DC jazz club where it once played just about every Monday night—51 shows a year.
  • Looking for a Christmas classic? Try BCJO’s 2012 album A Bohemian Christmas—recorded right here at the Mansion at Strathmore!
  • The orchestra received the 2012 DC Mayor’s Arts Award for Outstanding Emerging Artist.
