April 3 brings jazz night to the Town Hall Theatre

Plumas Arts will welcome dozens of talented high school jazz musicians from Plumas County Schools to the 2019 edition of the annual jazz night concert that will take place Wednesday, April 3, at the Town Hall Theatre at 7 p.m.

Attending this year are Greenville and Portola senior high school bands with their instructors, Jim Norman and Emily Haver, respectively.

Quincy music teacher Siobhan Markee will bring both the junior and senior high school jazz bands.

For nearly two decades Plumas Arts has relished the opportunity to bring together jazz bands from around the county high schools for a concert in the Town Hall Theatre. Music instructors say that the students really enjoy this performance because it is the only time the bands for all the schools perform together without being in competition.

As such, there is an enhanced sense of camaraderie that shines through the entire performance as they cheer each other on.

Admission donations will be gratefully accepted at the door. Funds will help to support the music programs at the schools performing.
