Buckhannon-Upshur Middle School’s Jazz Band has worked all year to develop a great sound as an ensemble and provide quality entertainment for Upshur County. The band has performed two school concerts – one in November and one in February. In March, they traveled to University High School to participate in the Northern Regional Jazz Festival and earned a superior rating from all three adjudicators. To finish out the year, they will be presenting a final concert on Wednesday, May 8th in the B-UMS cafeteria starting at 7 p.m. The concert is free and open to the public.
While this is the final concert, it won’t be the last time you can see the jazz band perform. They will be performing for the Tennerton Community Council’s celebration at Jawbone Park on Friday, May 10th starting at 6:00 p.m., which is also free and open to the public. Please show your support for the B-UMS Jazz Band at these upcoming events!
