The Saratoga Springs High School Jazz Band is traveling to the most magical place in the world – Disney! These talented young jazz artists will perform and compete in a national jazz festival at Walt Disney World Resort in late February.
This isn’t the first time SSHS Jazz Band has had the honor of representing Saratoga at Disney’s “Jazz it Up” festival in Florida. In 2010, the band made the same journey and ended up winning two awards for their performance.
The festival includes constructive workshops and freestyle jam sessions. The band will be judged and receive valuable feedback from some of the best professionals in the field.
Musical numbers will include both jazz pieces and Disney classics.
You can help the jazz band make it to Disney World, and here’s how: Saratoga Guitar & Music Center is donating 3% of its profits through February 20th to help offset some of the costs.
The trip will last from February 21st through the 27th. (Sounds like a great winter vacation to me – lucky kids!!)
Congratulations to all of the Saratoga Springs High School Jazz Band members for achieving this honor. Make us proud, and come back with tans!
