CONCORD HIGH SCHOOL JAZZ BAND
Doors: 7:30PM Show: 8:00PM
Concord High School is taking over Yoshi’s for ONE NIGHT ONLY. Make sure you buy tickets for what is sure to be an incredible evening. This is a great performance opportunity for our students, an amazing fundraiser for our program, and a fun night out for the adults! Here’s a rundown of the evening…
The Concord High School Jazz Ensemble II will open the night! They are the introductory jazz course at Concord High. These young, motivated musicians have worked hard throughout the year, excelled in competition, and are excited to kick off the show.
A fun surprise of the evening is we will be featuring the Concord High School Alumni Jazz Band! Alumni in this band have performed and graduated from music programs at Sac State, Cal State East Bay, UC Berkeley, UCLA, San Francisco Conservatory, California’s Jazz Conservatory, Diablo Valley College, and the US Marines.
We’ll also feature Concord’s Jazz Combo, the “Rizzology". These 5 jazz lions are hot off their win from the Campana Jazz Festival, where they received a score of 100/100, earning them 1st place in the High School Combo Division and giving them the highest score out of all 52 ensembles who performed at the festival. They are high school virtuosos and a treat to witness as they burn up any stage.
The night will close out with the Concord High School Jazz Ensemble I. They’ve consistently received 1st place and Sweepstakes finishes in competitions throughout the state. Outside of competition, Jazz I loves performing for their home crowd and the Concord community, making their musical selections span a variety of genres. Play music ranging from Thad Jones to Snarky Puppy, and even original student compositions, these high schoolers pack a musical punch and are one of the top high school jazz bands in California.
