The Jazz Band of Northview High School was invited to Swing Central Jazz in Savannah, Georgia from March 28 to April 2, 2016. Participating in this prestigious event was an honor for our Jazz Band student musicians. In the eleven years of Swing Central Jazz, we’re only the second band from Michigan invited to participate.
We thank you for your support and participation of our West Michigan community to travel to Savannah for Swing Central Jazz. You continue to support and encourage the Northview Jazz Band in several ways.
First, we invite you to attend our upcoming concerts. Having an enthusiastic audience is a big encouragement to our Northview Bands. The more comfortable our students are during a performance, the better they will do in the Swing Central Jazz competition. Here are our upcoming concerts at Northview High School Performing Arts Center:
- December 12 7:30 pm ALL bands concert
- February 21 7:30 pm ALL bands concert
- April 24 7:30 pm ALL bands concert
- April 28 NHS Jazz Night (with guest artist TBA)
In addition to our concerts at the High School, we will also be playing in several jazz festivals around the state. Please see the High School Concert schedule tab for festival dates and times.
