Instrumental Music Update

Dear Instrumental Music Community,

The Spring concert is upon us. Join us this Thursday evening at 7:00 in the auditorium. Students should be gathering their concert attire tonight to make sure they are ready for Thursday. The call time for students to arrive is 6:15.

Thank you to all who attended Jazzapalozza V. It was a great evening of jazz featuring guest artist Sam Lauritsen. Sam is a RB graduate who performed on the very first Jazzapalozza and is now finishing his degree in Jazz Performance at Roosevelt University’s Chicago College of Performing Arts. Both RB Jazz groups sounded great. Thank you to everyone who brought treats to share, especially Mrs. Baum’s lemon squares.

The Jazz Groups will be featured at This Must Be the Place on May 1st. The Jazz Ensemble will open the evening at 6:00 PM followed by the Jazz Band. Please call 630-243-1500 for reservations.

The Jazz Band will open for the Brass Tracks Big Band at Hackneys in Palos Heights on May 4th. Their set will begin at 7:00.

Mark your calendars for the Apollo Awards which will be held on May 19th at 7:00 PM. All music students will perform, and we will honor our outstanding students.


Mr. Baum and Mr. McOlgan
