Brandon Jazz Wrap-Up
Besides some truly memorable performances, we were also privileged to listen to a jaw-dropping performance by the Brandon University Jazz Ensemble under the direction of Michael Cain. His inspiration set list had the audience on their feet twice during their set. Most memorably when Michael took the helm at the piano and played 'Round Midnight as a haunting duet with one of the members from the BU Band on vocals. Simply brilliant.
In addition, the members were treated to some pretty memorable moments at Remmington's Steakhouse and at Thunderbird Bowl.
Thanks again to Ms. Russell for organizing this fantastic event and to the students for their exemplary behaviour. You make us proud time and time again. Not only by your obvious love of music making, but there is nothing more complementary that having bus drivers, restaurant managers, front dest hotel staff and random people coming up to you and tell you over and over again how great your kids are.... you truly are one of a kind.
