Jazz Cafe 2019 #99Learns #DGSPride

Congratulations to the over 160 student musicians from seven different jazz bands from five different schools that participated in the 2019 Jazz Cafe tonight at South High School in Downers Grove.  The varied repertoire during the course of the evening (26 different compositions) provided the audience with a stunning breadth and depth in jazz performance.

Special kudos to the students and directors from our sender schools for participating this evening:  Daniel Tedeschi and the Eisenhower Junior High School Jazz Band, Keith Carlson and the "Friends of Jazz" from Jefferson Junior High School, Brian Ohlsen and the Lakeview Junior High School Jazz band, and Christine Kaminski and the O'Neill Middle School Jazz Band.  With so many students performing at such a high level, the sonic future burns brightly for Downers Grove and the surrounding communities.
