from FBA State Jazz MPA held at Tenoroc High School (Lakeland, FL) on Tuesday, March 31st, 2015.
On Friday, Nov. 21st, the ZHS Jazz Ensemble hosted a dance for the ENTIRE student body in our Activity Center. The concert was FREE but we asked everyone to bring non-perishable food items to go to those ZHS students and families that could use a little extra help for the holidays.
We did NOT playing old jazz stands. What we DID was perform well-known POP pieces with the jazz band. Selections included music by Bruno Mars, Lady Gaga, Chicago, Earth Wind & Fire, Carly Rae Jepson, the Beatles, Ce Lo Green, Tower of Power, Pharrell Williams, Michael Jackson, LMFAO and others.
My kids worked their butts off getting ready for this event. We greatly appreciated the support our admin, teachers, staff and students gave us and the generous amount of “giving to those in need” that we saw.

Your jazz band sounded great at the anti-bullying dance. Here is a video. Feel free to share with anyone you think would like to see it. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gz0ljceBC4Y
