Today was the first day of our 2010 Festival, the seventh annual South Delta Jazz Festival and Workshop. More than 30 students have now registered for this year’s event, and we are underway with a full day of workshop, and two festival performances.
Our lunch time event featured our faculty performing together. This year we welcome back Len Aruliah, Rob Kohler, Stan Taylor, Brad Muirhead, Jared Burrows and Stephen Robb as workshop faculty. All took part in today’s concert.
This evening our senior students took part in a concert at Diefenbaker Park in Tsawwassen featuring the Bossa Boys. Again a good crowd of about 75 enjoyed the first really nice evening of summer that we have had to take in some nice tunes from our workshop participants.
