If you are looking for something to do tomorrow evening, come out and see what Brookland Jazz has been cooking up! Brookland Jazz consists of two ability-based ensembles, Jazz 2 and Jazz Cats. Jazz 2 is a developmental band where students learn the basic styles of jazz band, as well as improvisation. Most of these students are also learning to play a secondary instrument during this time. Jazz 2 is under the direction of Mr. Terry Hogard. Jazz Cats is our top band that consists of students that have developed their jazz musicianship enough to play more complex music. The Jazz Cats are under the direction of Mr. Jesse Lyons. Our concert, “Swingin’ Into Spring,” will be held tomorrow, April 18 at 7pm in the Brookland Auditorium. Admission is free to all who wish to attend. Come out and support live music performed by some incredible student musicians! We hope to see you there.🎶🎷🎺
