HRO has been in existence for over twenty-five years. The name Harlem Renaissance Orchestra was chosen because Harlem is the birthplace of several of our members, while the word renaissance means rebirth or revival. Our mission is to revive the music of the Big Band Era and to preserve this music in it's living form by giving recognition to the great creators: Count Basie, Duke Ellington, Pops Louie Armstrong, Benny Goodman, Lucky Millinder, Earl Fatha Hines, Billy Eckstine, Lionel Hampton, and others. We are dedicated to keeping the spirit of swing alive and thriving. Whether in a live performance or educating the next generation of musicians, HRO will remain a guardian of this great musical tradition.
