Week 6 Term 1 2016

Children’s Day 2016

Well done to last year’s and this year’s bands who performed at the Children’s Day event at Spencer Park on Sunday. The weather was hot, and there was a record number of people there including swing dancers enjoying the jazz music. We appreciate last year’s members coming back for this gig. It was great to see our brand new jazz band for 2016 play perform for their very first time and hear great soloing from our new members on trombone, trumpet, piano and guitar. Dylan Jonkers had also performed original songs earlier in the day, accompanying himself on piano.
