CHESTERTON | Each year, the CHS Jazz Ensemble concludes their school year by presenting their annual Spring jazz concert entitled, “All That Jazz.”
All That Jazz Opus XL will include the Chesterton High School Jazz Ensemble under the direction of Michael Scheiber, as well as the Chesterton Middle School Jazz Band under the direction of Vincent Arizzi. Tickets are available at the door, or through the CHS Music Dept. The concert will take place at 7 p.m. Saturday in the CHS Auditorium. Tickets are $10.
This year’s concert marks the 40th year that noted professional musicians have been asked to perform as guest artists for the event. The guest artists serve as clinicians for the group by rehearsing with the band at length during the evening prior to the concert date, and then again on the day of the concert. This is followed by a public concert held later that evening in the high school auditorium.
Headlining the event is the "The Jim Widner Sextet" which includes: Bassist Jim Widner, Trombonist Tom “Bones” Malone, Saxophonist Chip McNeill, Trumpeter Allen Beeson, Pianist Steve Allee and Drummer Stockton Helbing. All the members of the group are accomplished and internationally respected jazz musicians.
All seating is general admission. For additional information, contact the CHS Music Office at (219) 983-3730.
