Shorewood's Jazz Band and Jazz Choir will perform a free concert Tuesday night at 7:30pm in their beautiful, gleaming new theater on campus.
The Jazz Choir, under the direction of John Hendrix, will lead off.
After an intermission, Dave Johnson's Jazz Band will take the stage. Featured musicians include talented Max Kapur on piano, and Sam Anschell on alto sax.
Early arrivals will be treated to the musical equivalent of a movie theater's 'Coming Attractions', as a handful of musicians will entertain with several improvisations pieces prior to the Singers taking the stage.
As we all acquaint ourselves with the layout of the new Shorewood campus, access to the theater is recommended via the parking lot on N. 170th (between Fremont and Aurora). Walk north from the lot through the courtyard to the school's entrance.
The theater is just to the right of the main office. It, alone, would be worth the price of admission---- if admission was charged.
Music lovers of all ages are encouraged to attend, especially those youthful musicians in our community (and their parents).
