Jackson musicians tour schools

Traducción

On April 5, the Jackson Middle School Jazz Lab and Wired Up ensembles boarded a bus and toured District 45 Schools. The Jaguars made three school visits and gave assembly performances at Westmore, Ardmore and York Center Elementary.

Wired Up is a specialty group for orchestra students under the direction of Mr. Dave Farquhar, while Jazz Lab is a specialty group of band students under the direction of Mr. Joe Koppel.

Wired Up entertained students with popular music pieces. When the orchestra played “Never Gonna Give You Up,” students eagerly smiled and sang along. The Jazz Lab played “Moon River” while soloist Laney Marino sang for the crowd.

These special performances gave current and former instrumental music students a glimpse of opportunities that await them in middle school.
