May 13, 2017 "Sweet Sounds of Jazz"
Our annual “Sweet Sounds of Jazz” is an evening of music by our band program’s two very accomplished jazz bands and jazz combo. This event is very popular and continues to grow each year. Our students practice diligently to achieve that smooth big band sound. In addition to great music, students serve individually plated desserts and beverages to achieve the ambiance of a jazz club setting.
