This Friday and Saturday, High School and Junior High students from our area will be in the Auditorium and Music Complex preparing to play jazz pieces for the ASBOA Region IX Jazz Clinic. The public concert will be held at 3:00 PM on Saturday and the doors will open to the general public sometime after 1:00 PM. I promise if you do not get here until 2:30 or so, you can still get a good seat.
There will be four Jazz Bands that will be performing. They are
The 2nd Junior High Jazz Band directed by Cody Jernigan of Heber Springs High School, assisted by Robin Ratliff of Heber Springs Middle School
The 1st Junior High Jazz Band Directed by Bill Spainhour of North Little Rock High School
The 2nd Senior High Jazz Band directed by Christian Carichner, Assistant Professor of Tuba and Euphonium at the University of Central Arkansas
And the 1st Senior High Jazz Band directed by Dr. Jackie Lamar, Professor of Saxophone at the University of Central Arkansas
We would encourage you to come out and join us for a great afternoon of music. And the best part is admission is free.
