Those who came to the first musical concert of the year at Parkrose High School were treated to both choral and jazz selections in October.
The Debonaires took the stage first. Choral director, Lesley Bossert whispered, “Don’t their new outfits look great?”
The young singers did look sharp ‚Äì and sounded great ‚Äì as they went into their four numbers, “Star Spangled Banner”, “Be True to Your School”, “Over the Rainbow” and “Saturday Night Fish Fry”.
This year’s Parkrose High Jazz Band in concert!
Then, it was time for the Parkrose High Jazz Band to take the stage, under the baton of Mike Tolon.
This great group of youthful jazz musicians showed talent and ability as they presented “It Don’t Mean A Thing”, “When I Fall in Love” and “Foo’s Blues”.
