An Evening of Art and Jazz

On Tuesday evening, June 14th, at 7:30 pm, Kearny High School will be presenting an art show and jazz concert. Works by Kearny High School art students will fill the front hall of the high school while on stage in the Kearny High auditorium, the sounds of America’s classic music, jazz, will be heard.

Art students from Kearny High have had a busy spring winning awards in the Hudson County Teen Arts Festival with a showing at the Mill Creek Mall, A Panasonic Art Show in Secaucus, and the Hudson County Art in the Park Festival here in Kearny. Photography students have also won awards in the Jersey Journal Photography in Education competition and the Kearny Museum exhibit at the Kearny Library. Come out and support these talented students in their last show of the 2004-2005 school year!

On the music side of the evening, the Kearny High School saxophone ensemble will be up first playing a tribute to Duke Ellington. Following the sax ensemble will be a big band filled with musicians from Northern New Jersey and featuring Kearny faculty and administration. The trumpet section features the Kearny High band director, Ed Gargiulo. and Roosevelt School Principal, James DiGuglielmo. The sax section will feature Kearny High alumnus Joao Goncalves on the baritone sax and Marty Hoff, Department Chair of Music at Kearny High, on tenor sax. Also featured on saxophone is Cliff Hoff, a former member of the Glen Miller and Dorsey Bros. bands. The rhythm section is comprised of Larry Feintuck, music teacher at Schuyler and Lincoln Schools, on the piano and Kearny High School Principal, Frank Digesere on the guitar. The band is filled out with area professional musicians making a 17 piece big band and hopefully you will be ‘In the Mood’ for that big band sound!

The Kearny High School art and music departments would like to invite you out on this special evening of art and music at Kearny High. The show is free! Come out, enjoy the show and support the arts!
