Jazz Fest Reflection

"Mr. Stannard, I wanted to take the time and email you this morning – BRAVO to a fantastic event last week. I thoroughly enjoyed the Jazz Festival. It was fun to witness the schools perform and hear the feedback of the clinicians. It is a wonderful opportunity for these students. Thank you for all the hard work and time you and your team invested to make this opportunity happen. It was a very well-ran and organized festival. I was thoroughly impressed by your students helpful nature, cheerful attitude, and work ethic."


We made it! After countless hours of preparation and an outpouring of community support, Livingston displayed its love for education and the performing arts. To everyone who came out of the woodwork to make last weekend a success, I thank you deeply. This festival is undoubtedly a labor of love and a gift to all.


This year cracked the code on many elements of the festival. The 3-day format, performance spaces and times, bands, marketing, fund raising approaches, educational offerings. With committed families, community members, and an increased budget - I will continue to define and refine our approach moving into next year.


Moving forward, if you have constructive feedback on this year's festival - I would really enjoy discussing the festival over a cup of coffee (or the like)! If creating that time is challenging, I suppose an email will also suffice. Looking forward!


Best,

Mr. Stannard
