On Monday, May 20th, the North Suburban Youth Jazz Ensemble performed in it's first ever concert. Through out the past 16 weeks, students came together from a variety of schools in Lake and McHenry counties to rehearse at the Round Lake Beach Cultural and Civic Center. Students performed a wide variety of music in rock, Latin, and swing styles which included many improvised solos. North Suburban Youth Jazz aims to offer a supplemental jazz band experience that will enrich students' participation in their own middle school music programs. NSYJ hopes to give students the opportunity to meet and perform with like-minded student musicians from other surrounding area schools, foster a life long love of music and to offer other community enrichment opportunities.

North Suburban Youth Jazz is also holding auditions for it's 8 week summer course on Monday, June 3rd at the Round Lake Beach Cultural and Civic Center from 6-8pm. Anyone interested can go to www.nsyouthjazz.com for more information or email at nsyouthjazz@gmail.com.
