Jazz In The (Auditorium) Park

Inclement weather precipitated a venue change, however, the excellence of jazz performance in District 99 remained undaunted last evening. The DGN and DGS Jazz Lab Bands and Jazz Ensembles performed in addition to the D99 All-Star Band directed by Bill Miller and Craig Roselieb. Highlights included mambo dancers, vocalists, and faculty guest artists from both campuses.

Special thanks to the Downers Grove Park District for their continued support of this event, which kicks-off the Tuesday night Concerts in the Park series in Downers Grove.
