The Creative Opportunity Orchestra (CO2) is devoted to exploring the many traditions and facets of Jazz Music; to nurture and develop professional musicians and artists and to increase awareness, education, and appreciation of these art forms and cultures. CO2 strives, through performances and school programs, to create, collaborate, perform, promote and present to a diverse audience original compositions and the art of improvisational jazz, as well as culturally varied educational programs.
The Austin Creative Alliance is funded in part by the City of Austin through the Economic Development Department's Cultural Arts Division and by grants from Texas Commission on the Arts and the National Endowment for the Arts which believes that a great nation deserves great art. The Creative Alliance also receives generous in-kind support from CreateAustin, and Time Warner Cable News. We are also grateful for the ongoing support and participation of our members and patrons.
