Every year Euroradio Jazz Producers are putting together the European jazz big band under the name of Euroradio Jazz Orchestra (EJO). This project traces its roots back to 1965. Each EBU Member can chose one musician (under the age of 30) to perform with the EJO in two public jazz concerts organized by the host broadcaster. At least one concert is usually recorded by the EBU host broadcaster, who is responsible for the rehearsals as well as its logistical and promotional planning.

Elza Ozoliņa is a young piano player, Riga Jazz Stage 2019 finalist, who was chosen by Latvian Radio producers to take part in European Jazz Orchestra 2019 conducted by Christoph Cech. Together with EJO Elza participated in concerts in Austria - Graz, Vienna, Linz and Salzburg in 2019.
