Practice is where you learn your part.
Rehearsal is where you learn everyone else's part.
If you're wondering whether your child should be practicing at home, they should! Here is our rehearsal schedule as we approach our Final Concert/Senior Night next week. The expectation is students come to rehearsal with that day's music learned so we can make music, rather than learn our parts in our seat.
LIV JAZZ FEST MEETING - www.LivJazzFest.org
Tuesday May 28th - 6pm - Park High Band Room
The Liv Jazz Fest could use your input. If you would like to help make the 4th Annual Livingston Jazz Festival a success we will have a short meeting Monday May 26th at 6:00pm in the Park High Band Room.
BHS JAZZ GUEST ARTIST Tuesday, May 14, at 7:30 PM at the Emerson Theatre
...A Message for Bozeman High School Director of Bands, Kelly Berdahl
I wanted to let everyone know that this year is our 10th Annual BHS JAZZ GUEST ARTIST concert. Our artist this year is trumpeter John Daversa from the University of Miami, who just won triplicate GRAMMY awards this year, (2019), on his latest album.
(Best Large Jazz Ensemble, Best Instrumental Arrangement and Best Improvised Jazz Solo)
Even more interesting is the fact that Mr. Daversa will be performing on his EVI (electric valve instrument) on a tune or two at the concert. Super unique and amazing to hear!
Our concert is Tuesday, May 14, at 7:30 PM at the Emerson Theatre. Tickets are just $5 each!
Better yet, each year we host a FREE Jazz Clinic with the artist for any interested kids from around the area. The clinic is Monday the 13th at 6 PM in the Bozeman High Band Room. PLEASE send kids to catch this rare opportunity. ALL ARE WELCOME!
I hope you and/or some of your kids can attend part or all of this event!
