Each year the Chesterton High School Jazz Ensemble concludes their school year by presenting their annual spring jazz concert entitled, “All That Jazz.” This year’s concert marks the 41st 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.
Headlining the event is the “The Jim Widner Quartet” which includes: Bassist Jim Widner, Trumpeter Jack Wengroskey, Pianist Ken Kehner, and Drummer Stockton Helbing. All of the members of the group are highly accomplished, nationally respected jazz musicians and music educators.
“All That Jazz” Opus XLI will include the CHS Jazz Ensemble under the direction of Michael Scheiber. Tickets are available at the door, or through the CHS Music Dept. The concert will take place in the CHS Auditorium on Saturday, May 17 at 7:00 p.m. Tickets are all $8 each. All seating is general admission.
