Photos and story from last year’s event:
Many thanks to the four Austin ISD ensembles that participated: LBJ High School Jazz Band under the direction of Ponder East, Bass Face Sextet from McCallum High School (Carol Nelson, Director), Perez Elementary School Choir under the direction of Faith Cuminato, and Alison Dragon Choir led by Karen Young.
Also a big thanks to the Austin Jazz Workshop musicians who delivered a sizzling one-hour set of George Gershwin material: Larisa Montanaro, Matt Russell, Michael Stevens, Kevin Scott, Jimmy Shortell, and Michael Melinger.
Kudos to the AJW Board of Directors who were at the event: Herb Holland, Pam Zeigler, Henry Rohlfs, Rosita Bradham, and a special shout out to our Silent Auction Coordinator, Jana Kennon!
And speaking of auctions, a big thanks is due to all our 2016 donors. Please express your appreciation to them, and to our host Joe’s Crab Shack, by dining/shopping with them!
It was a great time! Thanks to all the attendees, and we hope to see you there next year!
