TONIGHT: German Youth Band: (Tues Oct 20) 6:30pm at Stuart-Hobson

The Youth Big Band and Choir from Flensburg, Germany (approximately 40 members ranging from ages 14-18) will be performing a free concert Tuesday night October 20 at Stuart-Hobson Middle School (410 E St NE) as part of a United States tour.  The performance will begin at 6:30pm and last about an hour.

The enthusiasm of young people for jazz music was the impulse for creating the Youth Big Band at the Altes Gymnasium in Flensburg, which lies on the border between Germany and Denmark.  Since its foundation the Big Band has given numerous concerts throughout Germany and has toured to Denmark, Great Britain, Russia, the Ukraine, Japan, and the United States. The repertoire is traditional and modern jazz, but also pop and funk music.

Thanks to parent Max Kieba for passing this along!
