The Albany High School Jazz Lab and Jazz Band, under the direction of Craig Bryant, perform to celebrate the end of the school year and to support music education in Albany schools. Bands from Albany have received top marks and awards at the Folsom, Reno, and Santa Cruz Jazz Festivals. In previous years, the Albany High School Jazz Band has performed at the CMEA State Conference in Sacramento, and been selected as a finalist for both the Next Generation Festival presented by the Monterey Jazz Festival and the “Essentially Ellington” contest presented by Jazz at Lincoln Center. Bryant’s students participate in the Jazzschool Studio Band and SFJAZZ High School All-Stars; the Oakland, Berkeley, and San Francisco Youth Orchestras, and the CBDA All-State bands and orchestras.
Tonight's performance is a fundraiser for Albany Music Fund, with proceeds supporting music programs in the Albany USD. For more information, please visit www.albanymusic.org.
