EVENT DETAILS
Jazz Night 2014 -- presented by Needham Bank -- features two-time Grammy nominated saxophonist Donny McCaslin, who will perform with the Lincoln-Center bound Medfield High School jazz band. He has performed with such jazz greats as Mingus Big Band, Pat Metheny, Tom Herrell and many others. 

Also performing at Jazz Night will be the high school Jazz Lab Band and Jazz Choir, and the Blake Middle School Jazz Band

The Medfield High School Jazz Band has been named one of just 15 finalists from across North America in the Essentially Ellington competition at Lincoln Center in New York City, May 8-10. This is the second time the band has gotten into Ellington in the past two years. The last time was 2012 when it took home numerous outstanding soloist awards.

Proceeds from Jazz Night ticket sales support the entire Medfield Music Program across orchestra, chorus and band, as well as general music education at the elementary level. In addition, special Ellington-specific fundraising activities will be taking place at Jazz Night in the auditorium lobby to help reduce the estimated $17,000 cost of the trip to New York, including a donation drop, and prize drawing for such items as a “Jazz-a-Gram” musical greeting card, student lessons, and more.

The Medfield Music Association plays a lead role in organizing the annual Jazz Night fundraising event. For more information, go to www.medfieldmusicassociation.com.
