Sr. Jazz at Trustee's Fall Supper

Oh what a night!  Congratulations to the Sr. Jazz band on their outstanding performance last night at the Trustee's fall supper.  The bands funktastic performance of Michael Jackson's THRILLER and Benny Goodman's SING, SING, SING brought the audience to their feet in a standing ovation.  Way to go Sr. Jazz.

Here's what people had to say about their performance,

"Dear Greg and the Westwood Jazz Band students,

WOW! You cannot begin to understand the impact you made on the Trustees and Administrators last night. You had us wowed from the moment you walked through the door. Your professionalism was evident. 

From the moment you started playing you had us mezmorized by your sounds. The foot tapping, body language and the smiles of your audience should be testament to the power you held over us. I think your own foot tapping and body language had us hooked!

The soloists were so confident and owned their parts! Loved the way you got into your groove!!!

What is it that makes you head to the bandroom at 7:30 a.m.? That Mr. Edwards, your fearless leader, I'm sure! 

Please know that your music making affects many people as we can feel your energy, see energy and finally hear your energy coming from your instrument. You each have a special talent that you've worked hard to perfect! Well done!

Thank you sincerely for last's night's performance (on such short notice I might add). You added life and excitement to the evening through your music!"

Jackie Gagné
Coordinator of the Arts

"...Just wanted to congratulate the Jazz band and Mr. Edwards for an unbelievable performance on Wednesday night at the Greenwood Inn. If you have not had the opportunity to see this group you are missing out. When I spoke to people that saw them play.... it was always the same response, "Wow!" My personal favourite was the Cordoviz solo. Awesome job....."

JJ Ross

Phys. Ed. Coordinator

"...Thanks once again for the wonderful entertainment you and the students provided for our Wednesday night dinner. The music was fantastic and the spirit the students brought to the event was great. We appreciate all you did to make the evening special."
