Virtual Compilation: City High and West High Jazz Ensembles
May 22 at 6:30 pm - 7:30 pmFree
Sponsored by West Music
In a “normal” year, we would be kicking off the Friday Night Concert Series, presented by Toyota of Iowa City this Friday with the City High and West High Jazz Ensembles. Since we aren’t able to get together for a live performance, we have the next best thing planned! Check out our Facebook page on Friday 5/22/20 at 6:30 PM and you’ll be able to watch a compilation of previous year’s performances from these talented students! Thanks to City Channel 4 for putting together the video and to our long-time partners at West Music Coralville for sponsoring the performers. You can still fill your instrumental needs at West Music!
Under the direction of Ryan Arp, the City High Little Hawks Jazz program will again be playing at the Friday Night Concert Series. The Little Hawks play at multiple venues each year, and always look forward to the opportunity to play on Clinton Street
Summer of the Arts Festivals:
Over 65 students perform in three jazz ensembles at Iowa City West High School. The West High Jazz Ensemble has qualified for the Iowa Jazz Championships every year for the last 24 years. Every year, the band gets the opportunity to work and perform with nationally known jazz artists at the Jazz Café concert hosted in December.
