Jazz Appreciation Month is upon us!
JAM has been celebrated all week in Columbus, OH and Stanton’s Sheet Music was proud to be one of the sponsors of the annual Jazz & World Music Festival held at Capital University. Our jazz department manned a display at the JAZZ INVITATIONAL on Friday, April 17 where a number of high school bands from around the state displayed their talents in a festival format. Jazz ensembles from Dublin HS, St. Charles HS, Ellet HS, Ashland HS, Thomas Worthington HS, Upper Arlington HS and Goshen HS brought their “A” games to the stage. After performing, the ensembles received great critiques and pointers from the world class adjudicators. Clinicians at the event included percussionist Ruben Alvarez, composer Mark Taylor, drummer Steve Houghton, pianist Stefan Karlsson, saxophonist Jarrard Harris and trumpeter Scott Belck.
The myriad jazz ensembles at Capital also performed throughout the day, most notably outside for lunch under blue, crystal clear Central Ohio skies.
