The Kaleidoscope Orchestra big band
was founded in 1979 and played concerts and dance gigs in Virginia in the 1980's, eventually becoming the house dance band
at Bolling AFB Officers' Club in the early 90's.
The Kaleidoscope Orchestra of the 21st century is actively playing dance gigs and concerts,
represented by several area music agencies.
We rehearse monthly south of Rockville, Maryland. At
rehearsals we work on challenging concert charts with an eye towards honing our ensemble skills and playing good big band
Ann Marlowe, the Kaleidoscope Orchestra's bass player, is our leader and manager.
