Our famous Essex Middle School All American Flying Submarine Band has been very busy preparing for our recent spring performances. We have recently participated in the following events:
May 2nd Essex High School Jazz festival. Our Band played alone and together with the Jazz Bands from Essex High School, as well as ADL. Each group played two selections, and then performed as one large group featuring selected soloists.
May 25 EMS Spring Concert. Our Submarine band performed in our annual Music Department Spring concert in addition to performances from our 6th Grade Band, 7-8 Band and the Founders Band. The event was standing room only and showcased all of our students hard work and abilities.
We are now preparing for our biggest performance of the school year; The Burlington Discover Jazz Festival on Church Street. We will be performing on Friday June 9th from 12:45-1:45 on the lower block across from city hall. We currently have fifteen selections we will be performing, including some hot solos for our students to “show their stuff”
