Spring Music Concert

This year the Libertyville and Washington Third and Fourth Grade students will be combining to bring you a Spring Program titled Jazz: A Swingin' Celebration. This is a program that came in a magazine subscription that was purchased with funds from one of the parent groups at the end of the year last year.

This program touches on a little bit of the history of Jazz in the United States, its roots as well as other branches of music that began through Jazz. The students have learned the names of several Jazz artists as well as how this music all ties together. There is a little Swing, Jazz, Dixieland, and Blues. Artists are mentioned from Duke Ellington to Herbie Hancock. This should be an exciting program for all.

The spring vocal concert will be on Monday, April 18th at 7pm at the Sondheim Center. There is no admission charge, but a free-will donation basket will be in the lobby.
