Algonquin will play host to the Massachusetts Association for Jazz Education Jazz Festival tomorrow. The competition will see groups from over 70 public and private schools in Central Mass perform, including the Algonquin Jazz I and Jazz II ensembles.

The ensembles will perform before a panel of professional jazz artists and educators who will award gold, silver, and bronze ratings. The groups will have a chance to move on to the state festival depending on their performance at districts.

Both Algonquin jazz ensembles received silver medals at last year’s festival.

The festival runs from 3:00 to 9:30 pm on Wednesday, and is open to the public. Algonquin Jazz II is scheduled to perform at 4:00 pm, and Jazz I at 8:30 pm.

Congratulations to the ARHS Jazz I and ARHS Jazz II for their silver medal performances at the MAJE Jazz Festival!

And thank you to the volunteers who helped with the festival!

And more jazz this month…..
Jazz Night is on Wednesday, March 23rd at 7pm in the auditorium at Algonquin Regional High School. Students will work with our guest artist during the school day and will perform with him at night during the jazz concert.

Our guest artist this year is Jeff Coffin, saxophonist with the Dave Matthews Band and Bela Fleck and the Flecktones. This will be a great evening of music featuring Mr. Coffin and the ARHS Jazz Groups, Melican Jazz I and Trottier Jazz Band.

Hope you can join us!
