Hello everyone,

Reminder that this Saturday is the North Vancouver Schools Jazz Festival. I am so excited to be sharing the stage with our junior jazz band at the festival, and to be celebrating and sharing music with other schools around the district!

Reminder here is the festival schedule:

Dress code for the festival is all black (performance attire). There will be one final lunch rehearsal before the festival on Thursday in the band room!

We are welcoming music students from all six secondary schools in North Vancouver, and we are very exciting to be gathered for this day. Due to limitations with space, we are unfortunately unable to open the festival to public this yearWe are hoping to expand the festival in future years so we are able to accommodate guests and share the wonderful work music students across the North Shore are doing with the public!

Thank you again for your support. Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns.
