Jazz in the Park returns to Delavan’s Phoenix Park Bandshell at 3 p.m. Saturday, June 6.
Performances will be given by the DDHS Jazz Ensemble, DDHS Jazz Lab Band, DDHS Lydian Choir, and Phoenix Middle School Jazz Ensemble.
Our students will be working throughout Friday, June 5 and the morning of June 6 with this year’s guest artist/clinician Mark Colby, an accomplished jazz saxophonist.
Colby has played and in some cases toured with such varied luminaries as Frank Sinatra, Jaco Pastorius, Mose Allison, Joe Williams and Charlie Haden. Currently he is performing as a guest soloist and clinician/adjudicator at middle schools, high schools and colleges throughout the United States and Europe, representing Selmer Paris Saxophones and Vandoren reeds.
The free concert is sponsored and supported by the Delavan-Darien Friends of the Visual and Performing Arts.
