The concert will feature the Lancaster Middle School Jazz Band, the Lancaster High School Jazz Band and the Northern Neck Big Band. Admission is $5.

“The LHS Jazz Band is particularly strong this year,” said director Kenny Flester. “It’s amazing what this band has been able to do, especially with only meeting once a week. It’s really a fun group of students.”

They will perform music from the Cannonball Adderley Quintet, Gordon Goodwin’s Big Phat Band, Thad Jones, and a special arrangement of “Fanfare For the Common Man” arranged specifically for the group by local drummer Keith Miller.

Senior trombonist Nick Nonnemacker, finishing up his sixth year in the jazz band, is looking forward to the concert. “This is my final performance at Lancaster. It’s been a great experience,” he said.
