The Loudoun Jazz Ensemble has been bringing Big Band music to the Northern Virginia area since 1997. As a performing organization of the Loudoun Community Band, we provide the opportunity for area musicians who have a strong interest in "Big Band" jazz to rehearse on a regular basis and perform for the people of Loudoun County and the DC metro area. The LJE is under the direction of talented jazz trombonist and university professor, John Morgan. The LJE has performed at The National Building Museum, The National Portraiture Gallery, The Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum as well as community events, private parties, fund-raisers and more. The LJE is committed to performing a wide variety of big band music, from the 40's through today in the style and excellence expected of such and organization.
