About Jeans n’ Classics
For almost 20 years the JnC approach to combining world class rock musicians and symphonies has been a game changer for orchestras in their quest to attract new and more expansive audiences.
Jeans ’n Classics is a group of musicians who understand orchestra culture and are committed to help in the building of younger, loyal audiences for symphony orchestras across North America.
Jeans ’n Classics appeals to an age group from, but not limited to, 25 to 65.
While most definitely not a tribute act, Jeans ‘n Classics faithfully interprets the music of legendary rock and pop albums and artists, with their own special and signature flair.
Symphonies far and wide have heralded the quality of our orchestral scores. Our reputation precedes us for providing lush, fully realized arrangements of rock and pop classics for rock band and symphony, and top notch, easy-to-work-with performers who truly know how to deliver a great rehearsal and live show experience with professionalism, humor, and finesse.
Jeans ’n Classics works with over 100 orchestras in venues throughout North America, and has created almost 1,000 original rock and pop orchestrations which are presented across 45 unique and exciting productions.
