This Week in Music: April 4-11 Posted by Brent Taylor in Weekly Bulletins on April 3, 2011

Welcome back! This week will be intense for the jazz students. We will be prepping for the Jazz Night this Friday. This will include lunch time rhythm section sectionals for all big bands. A large team of student volunteers have been planning for many months and we are looking forward to a great night of music. Each of the groups has been asked to supply some food or drink items as listed below. Students are welcome to bring their items to the Music Room office anytime during the day on Friday, or after school on Friday to the large gym. Food assignments are as follows:

Jazz A – pastries: scones, muffins, danishes, tarts, pies etc. (make as much as one store-bought package in the bakery section)
Jazz B - desserts: brownies, cookies, pies, nanaimo bars etc. (make as much as one store-bought package in the bakery section –> eg. 24 cookies, brownies depend on the size, 1 pie etc)
Jazz C – healthier options: veggies + dip, hummus + pita, cheese + crackers etc (one reasonably sized platter, these are popular)
Jazz D – JUNK FOOD! : chips, pretzels, pop, nachos, tortillas etc (each person buys one bag; some students are to bring 1L of pop)
Vocal Jazz – punch, hot chocolate (powder probably), candies and chocolate bars, anything else they would like to see at the event..
