Hello to all Beavercreek Music Parents!
I would like to highlight Beavercreek’s 22 year tradition, the Beavercreek Weekend of Jazz! This is an annual jazz festival organized and presented by the Beavercreek Music Parents Association and held in early spring with the primary objective to expose the youth of Beavercreek, Ohio and surrounding communities to new and exciting forms of jazz music. The weekend provides our young musicians opportunities to learn about careers in music directly from professional jazz musicians. The future of jazz meets the legends of jazz!
Weekend of Jazz 2022 will be a 2-day event held February 25th and 26th. Friday evening opens the festival with performances by the jazz bands of the Beavercreek Schools – Ankeney and Ferguson Middle Schools along with the Beavercreek High School bands. These performances are observed by an on-stage jazz professional, who offers constructive feedback of each performance and encouragement for the young musicians. Saturday is an all-day festival of a number of middle, junior high, and high school jazz bands from Ohio, Indiana, and Kentucky followed by an evening performance by a professional headline act. A real Festival of Jazz!
The Weekend of Jazz operates entirely with volunteers from the music program. These volunteers not only help with the execution of the festival, but are integrally involved in all aspects of planning and organizing the festival. We have some opportunities to support this Beavercreek tradition!
