This week the Stevenson Jazz Band will have the opportunity to work with international jazz trumpet artist Roger Ingram. This opportunity was made possible through the generosity of the Muzzin family. Roger Ingram will work with the jazz band Monday after school and perform with the group Tuesday night at 7p in the Stevenson auditorium. The concert will also feature the Rerunz and students from the Holmes Middle School Jazz Lab Band. We hope you will consider coming out to support this great educational experience for our young musicians. Admission is free and open to the public.
