Metropolitan Jazz Orchestra
Jim Carroll, artistic director
Celebrate Mardi Gras early with Northern Virginia’s own Metropolitan Jazz Orchestra in Carnival Celebration: Music from New Orleans to Rio to the Islands. Dress up in your Mardi Gras beads, don a mask, and enjoy a lively night of pulsating rhythms, upbeat parade brass, and plenty of improvisational jazz.

Led by Founder, Artistic Director, and virtuoso saxophonist Jim Carroll, the Metropolitan Jazz Orchestra comprises the most remarkable jazz performers in the metro region.
