Eat, drink, swing. On Saturday, April 16, 2011 beginning at 9am, you are invited to partake of a day of stellar jazz. Santa Barbara High School (SBHS) will host its 20th Annual Jazz Festival. Amid the spring sunshine, great vibes, and fantastic edible fare, more than a dozen highly polished and very excitable jazz outfits from schools all over Southern California will compete and join forces for the pleasure of the lucky audience. From heart-stopping ballads to full-bore swing, the Santa Barbara High School Theater will be filled with gorgeous jazz, passionately performed by some of tomorrow’s musical greats. Delicious (and enormous) tri-tip barbecue sandwiches will be for sale. Admission is $8 for adults, $5 for students and seniors and free for children 10 and under with adult admission. This year the SBHS jazz Festival will feature afternoon performances by Santa Barbara City College Big Bands “Good Times’, “Lunch Break”, and “Monday Madness”, and will also include stirring performances by SBHS’ Jazz Quintet, Jazz Quarter, and Advanced Jazz Band . Admission is for all the day’s performances and the afternoon special concert. Food sold separately. Come on out to support the arts, youth, musical passion, jazz and Life. And have your bell rung in the process. What else is there? Stay tuned for Jazz Fest performance times at the SBHS Jazz Fest Facebook page.
