PMS & PHS Jazz Bands to perform fundraiser at Yoshis
On Monday, April 29, 2019, the PMS and PHS Jazz Bands, directed by Dr. Andria Mullan, will present two shows at Yoshi’s in Jack London Square (510 West Embarcadero). A variety of selections from the Latin, swing, and funk genres will be performed throughout the evening with many featured student soloists.
This special evening of jazz music is a fundraiser for the Jazz Band program. The 6:30 pm show will feature the 7th Grade Jazz Band and PHS Jazz Bands. The 8:30 pm show will feature the 8th Grade Jazz Band and PHS Jazz Bands. PLEASE NOTE: the middle school groups will each only perform at one showtime.
Ticket prices are $20.00 per show. Once we sell $2,000.00 worth of tickets, any additional revenues go to the PHS/PMS Band program. This year we plan to use the money to purchase 20 new music stands and an accompanying music stand cart; a $2,000.00 expenditure.
With last year’s proceeds we purchased a new bass clarinet, a new percussion stand, and continued to improve our inventory of percussion instruments and accessories, including specifically, Latin percussion instruments (castanets, tambourine, wood clavés, salsa bongo bell, Latin twist shaker).
In past years, proceeds from this annual fundraiser have enabled us to purchase: alto, tenor, and bass saxophones and cases, 2 amps, speakers, concert snare drum, bari sax mouthpieces, and a variety of percussion accessories.
