I am so excited to remind you about the annual Wisconsin Lutheran College Jazz Festival coming up on Saturday, January 21st!!  This is an exciting and educational event for our young jazz musicians where they will get to perform in a clinic setting with professional jazz performers.  They will also participate in instrument-specific master classes and an improvisation session. 

Here's the basic info for the day:

WHAT: 2017 WLC Jazz Festival
WHERE: Fine Arts Building at Wisconsin Lutheran COLLEGE
WHEN: Jan. 21 from 12:30-4:50p.m.
WHAT TO BRING:  Instrument, Jazz Music (Nutcracker Swing and Ain't Misbehaving), water bottle and snack (if you prefer) -- A snack will also be provided by the WL GS Band Program.

The schedule for the day:
12:30-12:50 -- Arrive on campus and find homeroom
12:50 pm - Jazz Improv Clinic

If your family has a conflict, please let me know ASAP.  Our band program does pay a per student fee as well as a t-shirt fee for our students to attend, so we appreciate all you can do to have your child at the festival--even if they can only come for a portion of the festival!!  This is a valuable experience on a college campus with world-class musicians!!

There is a 7:00 pm concert in the Schwan Concert Hall at WLC (in which the high school groups are performing).  You are invited to attend, but you will need to contact the box office to get a ticket!
