East Bay Jazz High School All Stars Band
Sat, March 9 @ 7:00 pm
The East Bay Jazz High School All-Stars Band is made up of more than 20 exceptionally talented high school musicians from throughout the East Bay, selected through a competitive audition process. Sponsored by Livermore Valley Performing Arts Center’s educational outreach program, East Bay Jazz is the brainchild of local trombonist, composer and teacher Spencer Sussman. Now in its fourth year, the East Bay Jazz High School All Stars Band provides students with an invaluable opportunity for real-world performance experience as jazz musicians outside a school setting and fosters appreciation for jazz music as an art form within the community.
After auditions each fall, the All Stars rehearse several hours each week and perform throughout the Bay Area. In addition to providing the pre-show entertainment for LVPAC’s Brilliance at the Bankhead gala in September, the group has performed at the San Jose Jazz Festival and other venues. For availability and booking, contact Kiran Guleria, LVPAC’s Education Program Manager at 925.583.2312 or firstname.lastname@example.org
