Penncrest Jazz Night is a non-competitive clinic and performance opportunity for your program. The event is centered around a series of clinics provided by professional musicians, and opportunities for our students to spend time together and support one another. Last year was the first time we held the event. Eight bands had a blast and learned a ton. I think your second/lab band in particular will benefit from this event as they get a festival experience and feedback without the competitive element. Combos and middle school bands are also invited. The evening concludes with a performance by a pro jazz combo.

 Please see the attachment for details. You can register via mail/email or online. Hope you can make it!
