What do John Coltrane, Oscar Peterson, Pat Metheny, and a bunch of middle school students have in common?
Many of today's top jazz musicians played their first notes in school bands and orchestras.
Saturday morning, at 10:00 am on the Brook Run Stage, Peachtree Charter Middle School's Blue Shadow jazz band and percussion ensemble will perform in two separate sets. The kids have been practicing many new pieces, including improv parts by several soloists, and their new shirts look spiffy.
It's going to be another great day in Dunwoody ... and another reason I'm so glad to call this wonderful town "home."
