“Sarah Morrow, trombonist, holds the distinction of having been the first female instrumentalist to tour with Ray Charles, but the emphasis there should really be placed on instrumentalist rather than female, because she’s an impressively strong and soulful player, regardless of gender.”
– Shaun Dale, Jazz Review.Com

Ohio University’s Jazz and Jazz Percussion Ensembles will perform in concert with guest trombonist Sarah Morrow. Jazz Ensembles I and II form the cornerstone of the jazz program at Ohio University and provide music majors and non-majors with invaluable performing experience as well as exposure to internationally recognized jazz artists. Auditions are held each quarter and are open to all students, regardless of their majors.

Sarah Morrow (, OU alumna and veteran of the Ray Charles Orchestra, will perform as guest artist. The Pickerington native began playing trombone at age 12 and returned to her first love – jazz music – after working in arts administration. She was discovered by Ray Charles and is the first female instrumentalist to become a member of his orchestra. Ten years of touring Europe, including the prominent “Rising Star Tour” of Germany, Switzerland, and Austria, led to her latest project SARAH MORROW AND THE AMERICAN ALL STARS IN PARIS. She recorded two solo albums for RDC Records. (
