Pittsboro, NC - Next month, the Northwood High School Jazz Ensemble will compete in the internationally recognized Disney Jazz Celebration in Orlando, Florida. The festival will be judged by jazz giants from across the globe, and Northwood student musicians will participate in jam sessions and clinics with these musicians as well as receiving ratings, comments and scores.

To prepare for the festival, the Jazz Ensemble will present a special concert for the community on Tuesday, February 9, at 7 p.m. at Northwood's newly renovated Benjamin J. Lee Auditorium.

“We have the opportunity to bring the Touring Glenn Miller Orchestra as performers, guest artists and clinicians. This may be a once in a lifetime chance for the members of the Pittsboro community to enjoy this exceptional ensemble,” explained Eugene Cottrell, director of Northwood’s Instrumental Music Program. The NHS Jazz Ensemble will also perform at the concert.

Tickets are available online until January 26 and thereafter, if any tickets remain, at the door. Reserved seats are $10 and General Admission is only $5. Profits will underwrite the Jazz Ensemble trip for Florida. NHS is grateful for partial funding for the Glenn Miller Orchestra provided by ChathamArts & Briar Chapel.
