This is a reminder to all students who signed up for Jazz II that it begins on Monday at 7am.
Jazz II begins on Monday, November 10th at 7am in the PAC. I am excited to say that Nathanael Ankeny, a saxophone player and jazz professor at George Fox University, will be leading the Jazz II program again for the second year in a row.
Jazz II will meet 3 times per week, Monday-Wednesday-Friday from 7:00-7:50am. Mr. Ankeny and myself are not hold auditions for this ensemble, it is open for anyone who is interested in learning or developing their skills on a jazz instrument. We are looking for students who have a good attitude, willing to practice, and show up on time three times a week.
Jazz II will perform about 4 times during the school year in 2015. Our first performancewill be at the West Salem Jazz Festival on Saturday, February 7th.
Looking forward to getting it going and having Nathanael Ankeny on board again. We’re lucky to have him! See you Monday morning!
