Students in the Spash Jazz Bands and Counterpointers will provide pre-dinner, dinner and dance music throughout the evening. Vocal solos with full big band arrangements as well as combo music will be featured involving over 45 students.The Band and Choir Dept. have collaborated on the Jazz Night Club for the past 5 years. It is a wonderful way for the musicians to work together and appreciate each others’ talents. They have made great progress learning to play and sing in the jazz style of such greats as Ella Fitzgerald, Frank Sinatra, and Nat King Cole.
The Jazz Bands are under the direction of Mr. Brad Schmidt and the Vocal Jazz Choir is under the direction of Mrs. Deb Pionek.
