A little night music Mount Si jazz bands to host fund-raiser at TPC golf club
The Mount Si High School jazz bands will host their fifth-annual Jazz at the Club event, set for 7:30 p.m. Friday, May 16 at the TPC Snoqualmie Ridge Golf Club.
Formally-dressed school band members will serenade the audience with tunes including Afro Blue and Our Love is Here to Stay. The program will also feature jazz vibraphonist Susan Pascal.
Its extremely fancy and theres lots of desserts. Its going to be sweet, said sophomore drummer Chris Hindmarch.
The event is the largest fund-raiser for Mount Sis band program, which includes two instrumental concert groups, two jazz bands, an African drumming ensemble, and an audio engineering course.
Proceeds from the event provide new music and band instruments, transportation to band festivals, and guest artists for performances and education. Part of this years proceeds will go toward new chairs for the program. Sophomore trumpet player Josh Yoker said the chairs students currently use are heavy, difficult to stack and dont promote good posture.
Guest artist Pascal is classically trained and has recorded for a number of musicians, including Orville Johnson, The Jazz Police, Neil Andersson, Connie Evingson, and Greta Matassa, as well as for motion picture soundtracks including The Wedding Planner and Office Space.
