Jazz Band celebrates Black History Month

Posted by Jonathan Miller on 3/7/2013

On Thursday February 7th the jazz band celebrated Black History Month by performing music written by Duke Ellington. The band gave two performances, one for the students of Glenn High School, and an evening performance for family and friends. All the pieces in the program were either written by Ellington or made popular by him. The concert included a slide show with pictures and information about Duke Ellington and his music. The concert was very well received by parents, staff and students. Program for the concert was the following...
 
Caravan
It don't Mean a Thing
Mood Indigo
Perdido
Satin Doll
Take the A-Train
 
Next year the jazz band will celebrate Black History Month with the music of Herbie Hancock!
