Jazz Band Italian Dinner

By Kennedy Werner

Sweet sounds, entertainment, gourmet food, and proceeds all benefitting WLC Bands.  Band Director
David Rogers hosted an Italian dinner and Jazz Band Concert from 6:30pm until 9pm in Walled Lake
Central’s cafeteria Saturday, May 4. The band, consisting of ninth through twelfth graders, played a 40-
minute set beginning at 7pm.

“It’s a fun night for all,” said Rogers. “Thanks to [everyone] for their time and support. [The night] gave the
kids a nice event to perform at.”

Tickets were purchased in advanced for $8 or at the door for $10. Once there, dinner included mostaccioli
(meat sauce or vegetarian), salad, breadsticks, a beverage, and dessert.

Jazz Band students work hard year round in a performance based classroom environment specific for
instrumental musicians. They study and perform many genres of music including jazz, pop, Latin, and
rock music deprived from all around the world.
