 Chanhassen High is Hosting the 2013 Community Jazz Festival

On February 8th & 9th Chanhassen High is Hosting the 2013 Community Jazz Festival

The festival format once again promises to provide tremendous opportunities for the students of District 112. The event kicks off Friday morning with two vibrant, dynamic and educational concerts for all 700+ fifth graders featuring favorite tunes of the Swing Era. Several middle and high school students will attend these concerts as well. The festival continues throughout Friday and Saturday with national known guest stars Pete Whitman, woodwinds, and Dave Graf, trombone conducting woodwind and brass workshops for middle and high school students, as well as improvisation clinics and performances by all of the district’s jazz ensembles.

The highlight of the weekend will be the Jazz Festival Finale Concert on Saturday, February 9, at 7:30 pm in the Chanhassen High School Theater. This culminating event will feature the student ensembles from Middle Schools East & West, Pioneer Ridge, as well as Chanhassen and Chaska High Schools. The most anticipated performance of the night promises to be that of The Valley Jazz Big Band. It is with this powerhouse of local talent that the community can hear the spectacular musicianship of this year’s Jazz Festival guest stars, nationally known professional performers Pete Whitman, woodwinds, and Dave Graf, trombone.

The public is invited to attend many of the events, culminating with the Finale Concert on Saturday, February 9, at 7:30 p.m. at Chanhassen High School. Tickets for Saturday’s concert will be available at the door ($5 students & seniors / $8 adults).
