|Award-winning jazz band
performs May 4 in Bensonhurst
Friends of Historic New Utrecht presents
the award-winning Susan E. Wagner High
School Jazz Band in a free public
concert at the New Utrecht Reformed
Church on Saturday, May 4, at 7:30 p.m.
The band won first place overall at the
2013 Festival Disney competition in
Florida on March 22. They received a
superior rating, won "best in class"
honors, came in first place among all
performing jazz ensembles, and received
the highest score of any band in the
competition, conductor Paul Corn
reports. The competition was comprised
of about 15 schools traveling from all
over the country.
The Brooklyn concert will take place in
the Parish House of the church at 84th
Street and 18th Avenue in Bensonhurst.
The concert is one of a series of free
cultural and historical events sponsored
throughout the year by the Friends
historic organization. The Jazz Band
last appeared at New Utrecht in May
2010. At the May 4 concert, light
refreshments will be served. Bus and
subway stops are nearby.
