The event raised funds for the Shorewood Jazz band students so that they can attend the Fullerton California Jazz festival and Disneyland in March, as well as other regional jazz festivals this year.

Great article and photos Suzanne. We're so fortunate to have such wonderful music programs in our schools.

Suzanne takes terrific photos, but reports that these photos were actually taken by Dance-It! staff.
