Dear Jazz Band Families,
Jazz Cabaret 2020 is right around the corner! Get your tickets soon!
If this is the first year your student has participated in one of MHS's jazz bands and you are new to Jazz Cabaret, you are in for a treat.
The Middleton High School Jazz Cabaret has been around for more than ten years. During that time, the Cabaret has experienced a variety of changes, venues, and expansions resulting in the Cabaret that we have today--a dinner and concert with MHS's four jazz bands.
The MHS Jazz bands: Jazz Lab, our introductory band; our three auditioned bands--Cardinal Big Band, Jazz Orchestra, and our award-winning 7 O'Clock Jazz band practice throughout the year. Students learn to improvise and learn to play swing, funk, and Latin rhythms. Students are exposed to the music of the great masters--Dizzy Gillespie, John Coltrane, Duke Ellington, and others. The jazz band students, numbering over one hundred, are able to showcase their skills and talents, in two major events each year. The first event is Jazz Cabaret held in January. The second event is Jazz Tracs held every spring.
Jazz Cabaret 2020 is slated to be an upscale evening beginning with a social hour and smaller Jazz Combos followed by dinner, and music reminiscent of the era when big bands played in sophisticated nightclubs to an appreciative audience.
The Jazz Cabaret is a fun and inspiring evening for the students and a memorable and enjoyable evening for families.
Please save the date: Friday, January 10, 2020, 6 pm at the Madison Marriott West.
It is a night you won't want to miss!
