The Buffalo Grove High School Music Department will host its second annual Jazz Showcase Dinner on Friday, January 18, 2019 in the Buffalo Grove High School cafeteria.

Join student musicians of Buffalo Grove High School for an evening of award-winning jazz performances and delicious food. The evening will feature classic and newer jazz works performed by the Buffalo Grove High School Jazz Ensemble, Jazz Band, Jazz Combos, By Popular Demand Vocal Jazz, Inversion Vocal Jazz, and the Cooper Middle School Jazz Ensemble.

This performance will not only serve as an opportunity to showcase Buffalo Grove High School’s long-standing tradition of excellent jazz ensembles, but serve as a fundraiser for the band program.

This year is extra-special as it will feature the state-bound Buffalo Grove Jazz Ensemble.  The week following the Jazz Showcase members of the Jazz Ensemble will head to Peoria to perform at the state music festival.  This is the highest honor a music ensemble may receive in the state of Illinois. The works performed will feature various student soloists, highlighting the many talents of the programs.

Tickets are just $25 for adults and $15 for children and students. A catered dinner and beverages are included in the ticket price. For those wishing to forgo the dinner and only view the performance, tickets are $10. Children under the age of 3 will be admitted for free.  

Tickets may be purchased at https://bghsjazz.brownpapertickets.com/. Tickets will not be available at the event, and must be purchased by January 11. Buffalo Grove High School is located at 1100 West Dundee Road in Buffalo Grove.
