Vocal Jazz Outreach Concert on January 24

Vocal Jazz Ensemble performance, Dec. 2017

We hope you can join us on Wednesday night, January 24th for a Vocal Jazz Outreach Concert from 7-9pm in Roosevelt’s Performing Arts Theatre. We look forward to hearing from the vocal music programs at Bryant, John Stanford, and View Ridge Elementary schools, Hazel Wolf K-8, and JAMS and Eckstein Middle Schools, and of course, our own, Roosevelt Vocal Jazz Ensemble directed by Dr. Jean-Marie Kent. There will be a bake sale and RHS Jazz t-shirts/sweatshirts will be available. This is a FREE event (donations are always welcome and so appreciated)!
