The Music Director, Jacinda Bouton is an energetic conductor and at one point her bracelet flew off her wrist and landed on the floor. It has always amazed me to see so many instruments playing together in a large orchestra and how the music pouring out fills the large auditorium.
All That Jazz was just that....lots of jazz! The eight member jazz group played many jazzy tunes and Up The Old Mill Stream was a mellow tune compared to the other numbers. Gospel and Dixieland were favorites also. My favorite was When The Saints Go Marching In and everybody kept, or tried, to keep time to the music by clapping! The vocalist, Wende Harston, belted out the songs in a loud, clear voice!
The Queen City Jazz Band will celebrate sixty years in 2018! That's a lot of music enjoyed by more than one generation.
